Charges Dropped Against North Carolina Mom
Resisting a public officer and misdemeanor child abuse charges have been dropped against mother of two Julie Mall, 43, of the Charlotte area after the arresting officer failed to appear twice in court. Last July her son asked to drive the golf cart back to their rented cottage on Bald Head Island when police stopped them. Mall told the Charlotte Observer, “[the officer] has my arm behind his back and I sort of fall to my knees, because it hurts, and then he pushes me down into the ground.” Mall’s husband recorded a video as officer’s handcuffed her. The instance has been held up nationwide as an example of overzealous policing infringing on basic civil liberties.
