Mojave High parent to protest incident

first_imgShe said about 20 others also witnessed the 11 a.m. incident. “I was shocked,” she said. “By the time I saw him, he was screaming and hollering for help.” Stoudemire said sheriff’s deputies deleted photos she had taken using her cell phone. But sheriff’s Sgt. Bob Daniels said Stoudemire’s accounts of the events are “significantly exaggerated” and inaccurate. He said the boy was being arrested for public intoxication and that a deputy used pepper spray when the boy became combative. MOJAVE – A Mojave High parent is organizing a protest over what she says was police misconduct in an incident that occurred on campus last month. Dedra Stoudemire said she was arrested after photographing a boy in handcuffs being pepper-sprayed by sheriff’s deputies Feb. 28. Stoudemire said she was charged with resisting arrest and trespassing. Stoudemire said she is a singer and was on campus at the time because she was invited to perform in a presentation honoring Black History Month. Daniels said Stoudemire was not authorized to be on the portion of the campus where the boy was being arrested and that Stoudemire became combative when a deputy asked her to leave. Daniels also said Stoudemire’s cell-phone photos were not deleted. “Her phone wasn’t even taken from her,” he said. Stoudemire said her protest is scheduled for 7 a.m. March 16 at Mojave High.
