    Elbert Breshears called an ambulance for his wife who suffers from dementia, but it was police who showed up first.

    "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.

    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.

    By then paramedics arrived. Breshears says he and his wife were taken to the hospital. A doctor looked him over. "He dug out the gravel out of my head and sewed my head up," he says.
