A former West Virginia state, the Senator, is inviting the local sheriff's department to use an “excessive and unfair force” in the 2018 arrest in which the armed rector was involved in his ankle.
Andy Schoonover, 65, filed Wednesday's legal ruling against Sheriff Clay's Department after claiming his “constitutional rights” during the September 2018 arrest.
On the evening of 18 September, the delegates Michael Patrick Morris and Jonathan Holcomb stopped Schoonover while driving to his brothers home in Hartland, West Virginia, he cited the issue, which the Charleston Gazette-Mail received.

Schoonover, who became a perpetrator after he lost his hand in an ATV 2014 crash, drove his home to his brother to find out if he could bring him to the hospital because he had chest pains that day.
The former Senator state said that the delegates questioned him repeatedly despite not being in the car when they stopped it.
The delegates then confirmed that they kept it and made their right hand on their ankle and that it was placed in the patrol car in this way.
The lawsuit says that Schoonover was never told why he was arrested or detained and that he had never read his Miranda rights. It also states that, based on the “nature” of the Schoonover-related proceedings, nothing would justify it being handed over.

“No rational police officer in the positions of Deputy Holcomb or Deputy Morris could believe that it was reasonable to cut the wrist on his ankle, because of the nature of the incident, the complainant's non-violent behavior, the careless condition of the complainant, age the complainant, and the lack of a threat to the safety of the deputy or the public, ”the suit mentioned.
Schoonover is looking for punitive damages.
The former juror served as a state senator from 1989 to 1999, and accepted acceptance of bribes for a business arrangement, and reported the Gazette. He served 14 months in prison as a result.
