San Antonio Cops Punch, Drag Diabetic Man From Car After Assuming He’s Drunk

Is it another case of police officers going overboard? A 70-year-old San Antonio man was punched by a police officer and dragged from his car after suffering a diabetic episode, causing him to pass out in his vehicle while in the turning lane of a street. When cops arrived, Thomas Mathieu was unconscious behind the wheel, leading cops to assume he was intoxicated. He claims he awoke during the scuffle, as police were holding him on the ground.

After five minutes of arriving on the scene and dragging Mathieu from his car, an officer finally asked him if he was diabetic. Police officials claim every officer undergoes extensive training to spot diabetic emergencies, but the officers has reason to believe Mathieu was reaching for the gear shift.
