If you're going to be a cop, expect to get hurt.
A deputy is now suing a woman who called for help during an emergency. It all stems from a deputy-involved shooting that happened in Katy last year.
The deputy says he was injured when she made that call from her subdivision. In this lawsuit, he claims the homeowner failed to adequately warn 9-1-1 of the dangerous situation he was walking into.
The lawsuit just filed in Harris County is raising some eyebrows.
Sheriff's deputy Brady Pullen is suing a woman named Camina Figueroa after a 9-1-1 call the deputy responded to at Figueroa's Katy home back in December.
The lawsuit claims Pullen was violently and physically attacked by a man who'd allegedly been using bath salts as a drug for several days.
"Look, it's unprecedented" Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said. "So we're allowing our legal staff to manage this case and we'll see where it takes us."
Sheriff Garcia wouldn't say much about Pullen's civil lawsuit but called the filing by his deputy unprecedented.
The courts have already ruled that the police have no obligation to protect you. So now if they do decide to do their job (Does protect and serve ring a bell?), will they now be able to sue you if they get hurt in the line of duty? Hopefully the judge throws this case out and makes an example of this guy.
The 2nd Amendment is there for a reason.
