A couple of weeks after having major neck surgery, I had a friend drive me to a place of business before they opened for the day. My friend was driving
my car and was legal, although he worked the midnight shift and was very tired. A Ennis, Tx officer saw him and presumed he was intoxicated, also he is a bit slow, so when the officer began questioning him he really didn't respond as someone with a higher IQ would have. I was in the backseat and when I awoke and ask what the problem was, the officer acted as though it startled him that I was there. As I had recently had double surgery due to a broken neck the backseat was in disarray due to the fact that before and after neck surgery, the arms become very weak. I had spilled some of my medication. Therefore he assumed I was dealing narcotics. It was so soon after my surgery I couldn't speak loudly enough for the officer to hear me, so he assumed I was intoxicated on narcotics. This was after I was loudly ordered to exit my car. He asked if he could search my car, and I told him he could do what the law allows. I didn't give nor deny consent to search. He pro ceeded to scream " I am the law .". He then searched my car, found the prescriptions that my Drs had written after my surgery. He then confiscated all of my meds and took me to jail in Ennis Tx. At arraignment the in Ennis charged me with possession
of dangerous substances. I was handcuffed again and driven to the Ellis County Jail. After 3-5 hours I contacted my preacher so I wouldn't have to stay in jail any longer, I was in extreme pain and Ennis had all of my meds, including 2 heart meds, an antidepressant, ulcer medication, meds for nerve pain, and my pain meds that were legally prescibed after double neck surgery. By double neck surgery I was cut front and back, I will always have a cadaver bone plus bone from my hip in my neck.
I went to court to address these charges and DA Russell Jones and Judge Calvert in Waxahachie, Tx apologized and gave me a paper to take to Ennis PD stating that they were to return my meds, jewelery, blood pressure cuff, stethoscope, and all of my dogs medicine. Det Hopkins shoved the paperwork back at me saying to me or rather yelling " I'm not returning anything of yours go to the Dr and get some more meds, I refuse to accept that paperwork". I don't even know if I've been removed as a criminal, but they put my mugshot in the Ennis paper. I don't if there may be a case here, but I've just become strong enough to even try to deal with this injustice. I believe the statute of limitations
will be up around February 1-5 of 2017.
