How very, very interesting. Keith Lamont Scott was killed in Charlotte, North Carolina when he pulled a gun out of a thigh holster and brandished it at police. He first got back in his car and then came back out with the gun a second time and after repeated commands to drop the gun, he was shot and killed by a black police officer. Now, we know that Scott had served 15 months for firing a gun at San Antonio police officers in 2005. Guess he failed to learn his lesson the first time. Now he’s dead and his death sparked riots where at least one protester was killed and a dozen officers were wounded.
In the arrest in 2005, allegedly, as the officers approached Scott’s black Ford sedan, he fired two rounds from the driver’s seat and then sped away. Neither of the officers were hit and they proceeded to give chase and detain Scott several blocks away. It sounds eerily similar to this last and final encounter regardless of what his family claims.
The most shocking find in Scott’s record, however, is what occurred in Bexar County, Texas in 2005. In March of that year, Scott was sentenced to 15 months in state prison for evading arrest, and in July, he was consecutively sentenced to seven years on a conviction of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Sources are now coming forward and alleging that those two separate convictions are in fact related, and they both have to do with a confrontation between Scott and Bexar County Police in early 2005.
One source, who asked CTN to refrain from using her name to protect her identity, told reporters that Scott fired a handgun at San Antonio police officers when they attempted to detain him in February 2005 after noticing that he was driving erratically. (Scott had a history of drunk driving, according to court records).
Allegedly, as the officers approached Scott’s black Ford sedan, he fired two rounds from the driver’s seat and then sped away. Neither of the officers was hit, and they proceeded to give chase and detain Scott several blocks away.
In 2005, when Scott fled his vehicle, he left his gun on the passenger’s seat. He proceeded to assault one police officer by punching him in the face. Scott was released from Texas state prison in 2011.
This was definitely a pattern with this guy. It looks like his wife was pulling the same stunt others have pulled and tried to record the police encounter to use in court. She didn’t seem interested in helping her husband much. The guy had a history of violence and shooting at cops… the story tells itself. It’s a pity that his family lied to gin up riots and confrontations.
