My husband was JUST ARRESTED because of our window tint being 2 shades too dark. He was followed by 3 white police officers that were in our neighborhood due to an unrelated dispute. The police saw our truck, followed my husband some ways, and pulled him over about 7 miles from the house. My husband was told the window tiny was 2 shades too dark. He was then taken into custody for a 7 year old unpaid ticket. ALSO the police added a criminal charge to his unpaid ticket, RESISTING ARREST! They gave him resisting arrest because he was on the phone with me telling me to get the truck. He told the officers he is okay with me getting the truck. They said he was resisting, he said no Im just telling her where to come get the truck since she needs it for the kids. We have a handicap tag my son is permanently handicapped, I told this to the officer and he could have easily given me the keys for me to have transportation for my kids. Instead, now I am faced with $189.95 in towing fees and a $750 bond amount on his new "criminal" charge! The tickets he is able to pay off with money he has set aside. He is facing magristrate in the morning and his bond may be lowered, raised, or remain the same. We really need your help in getting him out and getting our truck back!
