Jose Jimenez was driving his car to a repair shop, and his wife was following behind to take him home after he'd dropped off the car. They'd stopped at a traffic light when six Orlando, Florida, police officers surrounded his car and with guns drawn shouted at him to get out. They were looking for a black man in a banged up Maxima who'd earlier committed armed robbery. Jimenez isn't black, and his car had no damage to the body. But during the arrest, Jimenez was zapped with a Taser and suffered a sprained ankle and bruises. Police say Jimenez, who has no criminal record, resisted arrest and committed battery on one of the officers. Jimenez and his wife say he did neither of those things.
It took a jury 26 minutes to decide that Jonathan Vanderhagen wasn't guilty.
A court ruled that officers did not have enough information to know whether or not stealing violates the Constitution.
Jonathan Vanderhagen believes a judge doomed his son to an early death. The judge says Vanderhagen's Facebook posts were intimidating.
