Daves charged the husband with traffic violations, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment, evading arrest and assault on an officer. The assault charge was based on the fact that Daves said Wright scraped his arm with a fingernail. We have previously seen assault charges brought against citizens in abusive arrest cases, including for flatulence. We have also seen cases where distraught family members are charged for trying to help their loved one.Believe it or not, touching a police officer does not constitute an assault. While these charges might eventually be dropped or dealt with otherwise, the gentleman in the story who is charged with these alleged crimes has already been fired from his job due to the charges.
But regardless of what happens in this case, there is one conclusion that is clear: Officer Jim Daves is a pansy.
