Cops change story, drop attempted murder charges after video surfaces

Posted September 7th, 2011 by phonon

A passenger in the pickup that rammed the suspect's van was OPD Sgt. Rhonda Huckelbery, who suspected that men in the van stole her husband's credit cards the day before and used them to buy nearly $1,000 in electronics.

At the time, OPD said the van's driver, Rogelio Cortes, tried to ram the van into its officers.

But the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, asked by OPD to investigate potentially fatal police shootings, found evidence that was "inconsistent" with some of the officers' sworn statements. Cortes, shot in the abdomen and arm, remains charged with attempting to flee or elude police.
