So much for the trumped up charge of "assaulting an officer!" How ironic that the officer committed a much greater and more significant felony in making a false police report than the ridiculous charges he filed against Mr. Wright.

The officer, Jim Page, was suspended without pay for five days in 2008. I wonder why?

Let me see here, When the Wrights pulled into the hospital parking lot , didn't he have the brains to think this was an emergency, when Mr. Wright jumped out of his car and went to carry his wife out, didn't the officer think to himself, "This guy isn't runnning down the road and we didn't just stop at Wendys...This is a hospital emergency entrance"

I honestly think that someone should be positive this officer passed all his tests and has full facilties, because I wouldn't hire this guy to work in a public restroom.

Felony evading arrest?! When Mr. Wright was told a warrant was out for his arrest he willfully attempted to turn himself in. He was told he was free to go! How can that be defined as evasion? Common sense is rare these days! A trained medical professional, a veteran medic, saving his wife's life, being charged with a felony because a "professional" law enforcement officer failed to properly assess the situation unfolding before him upon arrival at the hospital emergency room. Instead he threatens to arrest Mr. Wright. He should've helped first and THEN discussed any traffic violations, if warranted (pun intended). Citations are issued at officer discretion. The felony evasion charge serves only to appease the officer's ego. This Chattanooga, Tenn. officer leaves a lot to be desired as a compassionate human being, as does his supervisor for supporting his actions. Protect......AND SERVE? Dispatch, if I ever need an officer in an emergency, please don't send me this guy!!!

Please, take Barney Fife's gun and bullet away! This guy isn't smart enough to be a cop, much less carry a weapon. I hope he was able to make his "quota" later that day. Obviously, he's a "big time crime buster"! If the Chattanooga Police Department backs this insanity, then they all need to take another look at themselves. For God sakes folks, let’s use a little common sense and not prove we're educated idiots here. If I were in Mr. Wright's shoes, I would have made the same decisions!
