Texas Deputy Leaves Man with Broken Ribs and Concussion for Questioning Arrest

The Barstop County sheriff’s deputy had a warrant for Eric Ybarra’s arrest for driving with a suspended license and for not ensuring his daughter goes to school; misdemeanors that generally don’t require cops showing up to your home.

But not only did the deputy show up to Ibarra’s home on May 21, Ibarra said the deputy hopped over his fence to enter his property, which is how he managed to arrest him, according to KVUE.

Ibarra was under the impression that this made it an unlawful arrest, which is why he continued asking the deputy how he had entered the property (it’s legal but rare).

But the deputy took those questions as an act of violent resistance, which is why he slammed Ibarra to the ground as his 14-year-old daughter recorded.

Ibarra ended up transported to the hospital with broken ribs and a concussion instead of jail.

Ibarra was also charged with resisting arrest in addition to the two previous misdemeanors but that charge has since been dropped.

A retired judge told KVUE that while it’s legal for a cop to enter a person’s property to make an arrest for a misdemeanor warrant, it’s extremely rare.

After public criticism over the video, the Barstop County Sheriff’s Office said it has opened an internal investigation.

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.
