Cop arrests man, man was rushing wife to ER
Wednesday night, Jessie Wright noticed his wife showing possible signs of a stroke and immediately rushed her to the hospital.
says he was cautious on the drive—using his emergency lights and
honking his horn. However, he may not have been cautious enough.
Officer James Daves of the Chattanooga police says he saw Wright
speeding and run several red lights that nearly caused a collision.
Walking into the hospital while carrying his wife, who lost her leg to
cancer, Officer Daves confronted Wright. Allegedly the officer referred
to Wright with an obscenity and said “ he would send him to jail”. After
spending the night with his wife, Wright tried to turn himself in to
the police, but was told there was no warrant for the arrest. The next
day, Wright was brought into the Hamilton County Jail and then released
on $7500 bail – with 7 felony charges.
Wright thinks that Officer Daves’ actions put his wife’s health in danger.
Police say Officer Daves is currently on a paid administrative leave pending further investigation.
Did the officer cross the line by arresting Wright?
I vote for dropping all charges and firing the cop
