Asberry had been released from jail less than a month before, after serving time for spitting on an officer and threatening the officer’s family, behavior that the 37-year-old had been accused and convicted of in the past. Now, Asberry resisted this officer’s search request. The cop threatened ’cuffs and Asberry complied—until asked what the bulge in his left pocket was.
Asberry tried to take off. The cop stopped him and the two were fighting when Asberry allegedly tried to unholster the officer’s weapon. As the cop radioed in for help, a couple of bystanders assisted. Asberry was detained and the bulge in his pocket turned out to be a couple of sacks of weed and crack.
Now he’s back behind bars, where he spends most of his time. – Luke Turf
