The police report tells a different story, just look at the link
The report says the officer, named Cooper, saw Kersey riding his bike the wrong way down a street and when he tried to stop him, Kersey ditched his
bike and ran off towards his house, only to find the front door locked.
Then when Cooper tried to approach him, to give him a bicycle citation, Kersey started yelling and swinging his arms at him. Kersey is described as
being 6-foot-1 and 160 pounds as well...
Then apparently his mother came out and tried to pull Kersey inside, it was only then that the officer used his taser. His mother and a friend then
started to fight with Cooper. And it was only when another police officer arrived as backup, that they could keep his mother and the friend at bay.
It says both of them still struggled to subdue Kersey, who was obviously resisting arrest, so they were forced to use pepper spray and baton strikes
to force Kersey to the ground, so that they could handcuff him.
It even says it took several officers to get Kersey to the police car, even having to place his feet into a hobble to stop him from kicking them. It
also says the mother and a friend were arrested and given a 90-day jail sentence.
So, according to the report, he was breaking the law, he then attacked the police officer and he resisted arrest, it required several officers just to
get him to the police car. I mean come on, disabled or not, the guy is 6ft 1 and he started attacking a police officer...
