My husband is a over the road truck driver.He was woken up & arrested with no warrant on numerous charges. bail is $50k. he has a 6 yr daughter & 2 young grandsons @ home, that relied on his paycheck to make ends meet.
He stopped at a truck stop in Jackson, Mississippi on Thursday, August 30, 2018 and went to sleep, while his federal dot hours reset. Around 3am he was awoken by banging on his door, he made a comment that some drivers would be ready to fight. My husband once woken up after just a few hours is very irritable. When he rolled the window down officers were telling him he needs to move the semi then and there. He was arrested and has numerous charges against him Assault police officer with truck, felony fleeing, resisting arrest, profanity in public.
I am concerned, because my husband is dyslexic and he doesn't understand things the way everyone else does. He has now lost his job, was arrested while on a federal ordered rest period.
Not far from where this happened another semi drivers body was found in the trailer at another truck stop and was dead for at least two weeks and the fact the FBI is involved now because Mississippi Dept of Corrections has had 15 inmate deaths in the month of August alone and several of those deaths were inmates in their 20s and 30s. It has me worried for his health and well being.
He was finally arraigned on Thursday, September 6th and Bail was set at $50k. I can not come up with the 15% needed to bail him out and even at that once out he wouldn't be able to leave the state of Mississippi. His 6 year old daughter has been worried sick and quite honestly right now I do believe she is the only reason he hasn't given up. He still doesn't understand what happened or how for that matter and can't even contact the public defender with a prepaid card call from the jail. His mental health has taken a major downfall.
