The child was hitting, striking and screaming at officer Floyd, who subdued him enough to get him in his patrol car, where he began to try to kick out the windows. Roberts then placed him in his patrol car because there were bars on the windows. While in Roberts’ car, the juvenile pulled down his pants and urinated in the back seat. He also spit on all of the windows and ripped the back seat up and urinated under it as well. The boy then ripped the strobe lights from the back deck and threw them in the seat.

The med unit transported the juvenile to Athens Regional Medical Center fully restrained to the stretcher.
