Got News reported:
The boyfriend of the pregnant, blinded Ferguson protestor tried running over Ferguson police with his car, Gotnews.com has learned.
Law enforcement sources in the Ferguson police department describe the boyfriend, wanted on previous charges, as trying to hit Ferguson police officers with his car.
The media predictably seized on the story of the pregnant woman, Dornella Connors, who was wounded when police fired the bean bag at her boyfriend’s car and blinded her…
…The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported the following:
Deangelas Lee, 21, of Black Jack, was charged with second-degree assault on a law-enforcement officer. Police said a uniformed officer got out of a police car and approached Lee’s car. Lee began driving the car at a high rate of speed toward the officer, police said. The officer fired a “less-lethal” projectile from his shotgun, hitting the vehicle. The vehicle was later stopped at a check point in Jennings and Lee was arrested. A passenger in the car suffered an eye injury, though it was not clear how. Her condition was not known.
Dornella Connors lost an eye after police shot a bean bag at the car she was riding in.
Dornella lied to the media about the encounter.
