Dallas PD Pulls Gun out on Running Back Ryan Moats as he attemps to see dying Mother In Law



Houston Texan star Ryan Moats was rushing to the hospital to see his dying mother in-law when a Dallas police drew a gun on him and his family. While he deatined them outside, the mother in law passed away:

"As a storm of outrage gathered over his department, Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle called a news conference Thursday to apologize for the behavior of an officer who detained a distressed family outside a hospital emergency room.

Kunkle said Officer Robert Powell had been placed on paid administrative leave…… in connection with the incident last week, in which he stopped a family rushing to visit a dying mother, keeping them for 13 minutes to write a traffic ticket. The woman died before two of the family members were able to see her. “I am embarrassed and disappointed by the behavior of one of our police officers,” the chief told a packed audience of media outlets that included Inside Edition.

“His behavior, in my opinion, did not exhibit the common sense, discretion, the compassion that we expect our officers to exhibit.” During the traffic stop, caught on the officer’s in-car camera, Powell berated the driver, 26-year-old NFL running back Ryan Moats, and threatened him with arrest for running a traffic light."

This is the type of mess that gives Police a bad name in the first place. I hope he sues the hell out of the department.
