Police Arrest Paraplegic Man For Considering Himself a PedestrianSubmitted by JO4RP on Thu, 07/03/2014 - 22:33
So much of this lately the stories are running together.
A male officer ordered him to stand up, Dodson recalled. “I said, ‘I can’t stand up. That’s why I’m in this wheelchair.’”
A second officer literally slammed the paralyzed man face-first on the ground and handcuffed him behind his back, the Roanoke Times reported.
Mr. Dodson was charged with driving the wrong way, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. He was taken to jail on a stretcher and his scooter was impounded. His bond was set at $1,000.
