On April 3, 2007 my son was in a vehicle driven by someone he recently met and the guys girlfriend. They pulled into a gas station and a patrol car pulled in behind them.
My sons friend took off because he said he had a warrant and was driving crazily on the wrong side of the street. The police chased them and he went into an apartment complex well ahead of the police.
They all jumped out and ran( I think my sons friend knew someone in the apts.) My son ran also and climbed over a wall to a different building.
The police caught him and sprayed him so much with pepper spray both before and AFTER being handcuffed, that a neighbor came out trying to help him by turning on her hose to spray him and stop the burning.
She was told to go in her house.
My son had to be taken to the hospital and treated for shortness of breath and burns caused by the spray. The police were given 2 prescriptions for him.
(We have never seen them)
He was questioned about where the other people went and charged with aggravated DUI and Felony flight.
I feel because they could not find the others ,they needed a scape goat.
My son was not the driver but, they don't care.
The other fellow surely isn't going to step forward and admit his guilt.
Unfortunetly, I found out that the vehicle was just recently bought and the title wasn't in this guys name yet.
I have major health problems and have to spend money that I can hardly afford to spend to hire an attorney to go to trial.
I am very afraid that my son will be found guilty because he cannot provide the others to the police. I know they were outright mean because he never got the prescriptions the Dr. wrote.
