The Case of the Deputy’s Wife’s Last Round

Attorney Gerald Bourque represented the wife of a Harris County Deputy who had been charged with Resisting Arrest.

The Incident

The incident occurred at a club in The Woodlands when one of the off-duty Officers asked the Defendant to put her drink down because the bar was closing. The Officer claimed that the Defendant refused to comply with his order and when he attempted to arrest her, she resisted. The Defendant was actually tasered by the off-duty Officer.

Gradoni & Associates Investigate the Matter

We interviewed a number of witnesses who disputed the Officer’s version of events. Gerald was able to use the witness statements to get the District Attorney to dismiss the charges.

RESULT BASED ON INVESTIGATION: Criminal Charges for Resisting Arrest, Dismissed
