    Wow, one rule of thumb when dealing with the police. Always attempt to comply. I am assuming the cop was just doing his job and not being rude though Hays cops are usually polite unless you do something like bed rude first.

  • Eyewitness

    Being a eyewitness, this article is completely wrong. Hays police should be ashamed to even post this. Headline should be police brutality to Hays Teen.

    • Say what again?

      So the 19 year old that was driving under the influence, not complying with officers, and apparently resisted getting out of his vehicle was treated unfairly and with undue force by officers? Tell me more about that.

      What is your name and number?

    • Eyewitness? Really?

      If this guy really saw anything he would have made himself know and fought corruption or whatever other conspiracy theory it might be. Until then he is just another anonymous tool like the rest of us.

    People need to stop excusing bad behavior. The kid was driving under the influence and refused simple directions from officers. He’s lucky they didn’t shoot him.
