These stories are never good. A man named Sean Reardon claims he was driving on February 18th in Chico, California at about 9:30 PM when he was pulled over for a broken tail light and expired tags. According to him, he was tackled to the ground “multiple times with extreme violence, with a baton, club or stick without provocation.” He then says he was thrown into a van and taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries which include a broken nose, sternum and ribs. However, there is more to the story than Reardon is explaining. The Butte County Chief Deputy D.A. have issued a statement explaining that the man had a warrant for a gun charge that he never appeared in court on and attempted to run from the police when he was pulled over because he knew he was going to get caught. He also refused to put his hands up and kept them around his waist area, which is an absolute no-no for police. Not to mention, Reardon blew a .14 which is TWICE the legal limit.
Reardon was hit with a bunch of felony charges including evading a peace officer, DUI, DUI with alcohol or drugs within 10 years of a prior, and resisting an executive officer.
