Elbert Breshears's wife suffers from dementia and they needed some medical help, so Mr. Brashears called an ambulance.

However, it was not paramedics that showed up first, it was the cops.

"The wife and I were standing about here, that's the window she knocked out. I was standing here holding her hand and she was wavering hollering help," Breshears said.

When police got there,"police car drove up, he bailed out ran over and knocked me down. He told me to get up, I told him I couldn't," he explained to KSPR 33.

That's when Breshears says police got aggressive. "First thing, I know they grab me, threw me out there on the gravel. One of them sat down on my back, the other sat down on my head. They were trying to get handcuffs on me. I told them I can't get my hands up. I have no objection to being handcuffed," says Breshears.

What kind of sicko human being does it take to throw an elderly man to the ground, beat and kick him?

Brashears and his wife were taken to the hospital where she was helped and a doctor took the gravel out of his head and stitched him up.

According to the report, Breshears' wife is in the hands of professional care right now out of Humansville. He is working on getting her help a little closer to home here. He is also working on getting an attorney and plans to press charges.

One thing is certain, it will be the tax payers that are held liable if any 'justice' is served in this scenario.
