Houston cops saw a female toss a gun out the window of a car they were about to stop. The driver and passenger both told the HPD officers that the 17 YO driver passed the gun to the 18 YO passenger and told her to throw it out the window. Everything captured on body cams.
RUN JOE RUN
Sounds like a “slam dunk” huh? Not so fast. In Harris County, TX the cops must call the DA before making an arrest. The assistant DA refused the case. They also contacted the Chief Deputy DA on duty. Refused again. Its a violation of state and federal law to possess a gun under eighteen. Besides, throwing a gun onto a street is dangerous in and of itself.
The new DA will not charge for certain crimes, like resisting, assaulting an officer and apparently gun charges.
The Cops SGT told them to ticket the female with “littering With A Gun” and set it municiple court. Wonder what the judge will say?
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST AND TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!
