Man Furious At Cops For Photographing Him In Compromising Position

Police say he was just drunk.

Either way, he ended up with half his body down the gutter and his feet sticking into the air.

He remained like that for 40 minutes until police came. And one of them snapped the above photo before firefighters rescued him.

Now the California man is furious at Ceres police for taking the photo and releasing it to the media last week.

“I don’t understand why Ceres Police would sit there and take pictures,” he told a [__local Fox affiliate.__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/man-rescued-from-storm-dr) “That kind of pisses me off.”

Police said he never told them anything about any gang members and firefighters said his injuries were not consistent with an attack.

> Ceres Police Sgt. Jose Berber said they don’t release pictures of crime victims, but added that Jared never told them he was attacked. He refused treatment at the scene and still hasn’t filed a police report, Berber added.
> “Since it’s a public document and he is an adult I went ahead and released his name,” Sgt. Berber said. “If we would have known from that day he was a victim of crime, we would never have released the photo or his name.”
> Firefighters examined Jared at the scene and didn’t see any signs of injuries from an attack, authorities said.
> Jared’s wife told CBS13 on Friday that he was highly intoxicated during the incident, which Jared denied Saturday.

It doesn’t appear he ever retreived his phone.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
