You know the cop who interfered with Houston Texans Ryan Moats, who was rushing to the hospital for his dying mother and retained until after her death?
Well, apparently that same officer had a run-in with Zach Thomas’ wife. You can read the story here.
On July 27, 2008, while her husband was at training camp with the Cowboys in Oxnard, Calif., Maritza Thomas was pulled over by Powell for an illegal U-turn near NorthPark Center.
Maritza Thomas was issued five tickets by Powell, four of which were later dismissed. Thomas was handcuffed, placed in the back of a police cruiser, spent about three hours in the Dallas County Jail and was threatened with the possibility of spending the night behind bars.
I think it is safe to say the Dallas Police Department needs to fire Officer Robert Powell, who continues to embarrass the squad.
