Man Pulls Over Cop; Entire Family Thrown in Jail

McMINNVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A motorist's decision to stop a deputy for speeding escalated into a series of incidents than ended with his entire family joining him in jail.

Last week, Lance E. Champion, 23, reportedly pulled in behind Deputy Lt. Stan Hillis across from the local jail and told Hillis he had violated the speed limit. By the end of their conversation, Champion was in custody charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and evading arrest.

Champion called his mother, Janice K. Champion, 48, who arrived with her 17-year-old son. The teen allegedly slapped the hand of a deputy who was gesturing for them to leave the area as Lance Champion's vehicle was about to be towed.

"If you strike an officer, you're going to jail 100 percent of the time," said Sheriff Jackie Matheny.

Mrs. Champion was then taken into custody, charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Officers say she was loud and refused to obey orders.

Her husband Hal Champion, 47, then arrived from church, was shot with a deputy's Taser and taken into custody on similar charges.

All were later freed on bond.

"This is a fine upstanding family," said the Champions' attorney Michael Galligan. "These deputies acted in a harmful and inappropriate manner. We feel their actions violated the law."

Matheny is backing his men: "They have over 40 years of combined experience and excellent work records. They were as surprised by the Champions' conduct as anyone."

Personally I've only had a positive experience with a cop once in my whole life. The rest of them act like cockbiters most of the time, so I tend to think that the cop was speeding and the guy was sick of seeing the cops do what ever they want (that's how it in here in Dubuque) and so the guy decided to call the cop on it. Cop took offense and the guy wasn't intimidated and it all snowballed from there.

I think the last 15 years has shown that cops can do whatever they want. Unless you get it on video. Nobody cares what cops do unless you have it on film. It also helps if the cops are white and you are some-shade-other-than-white.

I've never had a problem with a police officer. What ticks me off is people in positions of authority that abuse power. Unfortunatelly people like that exist everywere (including police departments)...Off course when a police officer does it, it is going to be highly publicized and criticized because law enforcement officers are held at a higher standard....we expect more from police officers and we feel betrayed and dissapointed when one of them does something wrong...but just as not all cops are good, not all cops are bad.

One time a cop pulled me over and was like: WHAT THE **** ARE YOU DOING STREETRACING FOR????

And I was just appalled by the way he yelled and swore at me like that. What a dick. What a ****ing dick.
