A woman was put onto the ground into a fire ant colony and the victim claims officers did nothing to help.

Illegal U-Turn Leads to Crazy Arrest

Two police in Santa Fe, Texas are currently being sued by a woman named Taylor Rogers. Back in 2021, she was picking up her son from school. She made an illegal U-turn into the school parking lot and refused to pull over for the officers. Mrs. Rogers attempted to flee, but was stopped by two officers. She claims she was fearful after an officer pointed a gun at her and that is why she did not pull over.
