they were driving in the subdivsion—50 to 60 miles per hour
according to one witness and without his siren on according to
two—in an incident caught on video. The St. Louis

 [James] Schrader said Tuesday that he has health
conditions and the officer roughed him up. “He had no business
touching me,” said Schrader, who was booked on suspicion of
interfering with a police officer in performance of his
duty. 

After he was handcuffed, Schrader was complaining of a health
condition, so the officer took him directly to a hospital after the
arrest. Schrader said he was concerned for his safety during that
ride because the officer was texting while driving to the hospital
and driving recklessly.

Police say they were called to the area by paramedics for a
“suspected overdose.” Of that suspected overdose, police told the
Post-Dispatch only that no one died. A neighbor said he
called the police on the officer who made the arrest as soon as he
got out of his car, saying he had an “attitude.”
