I witnessed the whole thing and he didnt assult no police officer. THEY assulted him!!! He was on the ground while they kept kicking him, he was also on the ground when they tased him!!. I know he might have some bad demons on his side, but when he is being charged with something he did not do that is wrong! I wish I would have video taped it while it was being done because he did NOT assult the police officer.

The warrent was not for the female, the warrent was for an ex boyfriend that got a traffic ticket in that car he never took care of it which gave him a warrent. So everytime those plates are ran that warrent pops up.

Drugs change people but in the end it is your own actions. We just need to take responsibility for them.
