Welcome to the 816.
If you give a mouse a cookie…if you give a pig a pancake…
The major told Kyle James that he was in danger of being arrested for disorderly conduct and told the three men to take a cab home.
The three got into a cab but got into an argument. The cab drove a few blocks and then the three managed to get out of the cab and into their SUV.
“As we were talking, we then observed the SUV, which we had seen the companions around, leave the scene at a high rate of speed,” according to the report. “Based on where the captain and major had parked their vehicles, they were not able to get to them to initiate any attempt to stop the vehicle.”
Police Capt. Steve Young said officers have discretion on whether to arrest someone for disorderly conduct. He also said officers have discretion on pursuing a vehicle possibly driven by an intoxicated person. Young said officers were busy handling other intoxicated individuals and made the decision to get Kyle James and his friends to leave and not pursue the matter further.
According to sources, Kyle James was allegedly drunk, belligerent and using gang signs around 3:00 a.m. on Friday morning near the Brooksider Bar. Witnesses say that James picked a fight with a man who was a self-described martial arts expert, who then took off his shirt and stood face-to-face with James before kicking him several times in the face and head.
And then Kyle got a special treat! A ride on the taxpayer’s dime to his girly’s place. Did they let him play with the lights and sirens?
Wondering if Kyle’s dad’s (the mayor of KCMO) personal injury law firm will be retained to sue the man who kicked him…ermmmmm.
