Texas Deputy Sues Woman for 'Mental Anguish' After He Kills Her Son-in-Law
According to the Houston Chronicle, Harris County Deputy Brady Pullen is demanding that Camina Figueroa pay him $200,000 because she did not "adequately warn" dispatchers that Kemal Yazar "posed a violent threat to others" when she called 911 to say that he was acting crazy after several days of using bath salts.
The lawsuit notes that "defendant [Figueroa] decided to evacuate the children for safety reasons" before calling police.
Pullen claimed that he was violently attacked by Yazar as soon as he went through the door. The deputy said he was bitten and his nose was broken. Officers used their Tasers on Yazar, and then fired multiple shots with their service weapons, killing him.
However, Corina Padilla, who witnessed the incident, said that her brother-in-law never touched the officers and was backing away with his hands up when they shot him.
"At no moment did Kemal assault the officer," she insisted. "An unarmed man, a family guy, father and husband of three girls was killed. He had no criminal record. He was self-employed in import-export of very expensive rugs from Turkey and Persia."
