Mark Rodriguez, Alleges Police Brutality

“Upon entering a feeder road a black pick up joined by at the time Aaron Gamboa, Assistant Superintendent of Police along with this son ran me down. Stop me. Took me out of my truck. Put me in the passenger seat. Drive to my house. Took me out. When they took me out I still see Gamboa’s son, one who is a police officer likewise he was still sitting in my vehicle and was moving my vehicle. I told them where are you going with my vehicle? I told them if anything happens to my vehicle I told them that I will sue them personally. That is when the whole commotion, you know. I would say after two, three minutes after the black pickup drove back with Mister Gamboa Assistant Superintendent of Police, Corporal Warrior, another police constable arrived at my yard and that is where the commotion happened. They dumped me in my vehicle back. They took me and they beat me in the vehicle senseless. My hand was swollen. They stood up in my groin. I had pain. As you can see on my neck where he grabbed me and he squeezed me. I still have a little problem swallowing.”
