Anthony Jackson (Duluth, MN) is a 50- year-old-man in a wheelchair. Anthony, a resident at the San Marcos Homeless Shelter, was drinking in a no-drinking area and became involved in a fight with two residents. Police were called to the situation. They took him to a detox center. He was not acting disruptively at this point, but he did talk back to the police officers after they demanded he take of his coat. In retaliation, one officer hit him on the head five times and pulled him off of his wheelchair. He was then arrested. The police officer was fired for using excessive force.
