Police in Utah arrested a man for video recording a conversation they were having with his mother before arresting his mother for failing to disperse the area after her son's arrest, sending her into diabetic shock as they were walking her from the patrol car to the jail.
That led to Vernal City police dragging her handcuffed, unconscious body into the booking room and plopping it down where they stood around smiling as if it was all some kind of joke.
"I freaked out," said her son, Coty Tabbee, 27, who had just been transported to the booking room in another patrol on disorderly conduct and interfering charges after he stood up for his right to record on a public sidewalk.
“They just didn’t care,” he said. “They just stood around watching, smiling.”
“I said, ‘do you think this is funny?’”
After more than two minutes of Tabbee repeatedly telling them that his mother is a diabetic and needs help, a deputy retrieved a blood sugar testing kit and tested her blood, indicting that the blood glucose level was 200 mg/dl.
The deputies called paramedics who performed CPR on her before transporting her to the hospital where she was cited and released for failure to disperse as well as disorderly conduct. Tabbee was released from jail seven hours later.
The incident, the second from Utah to emerge this week, took place July 27 when Tabbee's mother had gone to the house of another woman who owed her $20. Hi videos are above and below. A local news station ran a story with the headline Vernal man claims police arrested him for recording mother’s arrest as they had not watched the video.
