Constitutional Corner - False Arrest
Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputy Joseph Quiles ran a stop sign and T-boned Tanya Weyker's car in February 2013. Tanya's neck was broken in four places. Weyker was arrested for drunk driving (she had a BAC of 0.00 - cold stone sober) and blamed for the collision. However, even when surveillance camera footage showed Quilesnot stopping at the stop sign, the DA still wanted Tanya to pay for the damages. The officer has filed for permanent disability, which means he will make big bucks and can retire early, and was not charged with filing a phony police report. Tanya is out of work, has a broken neck, and medical bills.
