Cop Sues Liquor Store For Allegedly Getting Student Drunk, Killed
The Pleasantville, New York police officer who killed college football player Danroy Henry during an incident in October is suing a liquor store for allegedly aiding Henry in getting drunk.
According to reports by Newsone:
A lawyer for Pleasantville Officer Aaron Hess says Danroy Henry Jr.’s Oct. 17 death would not have happened if Henry had been sober. The lawsuit filed last week says the liquor store is liable for the injuries Hess suffered when Henry’s car hit him.
An autopsy found the Easton, Mass., student’s blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit. A grand jury cleared Hess of wrongdoing.
The lawsuit says Henry, who was under the drinking age, bought liquor before going to the bar and did not drink at the bar.
Hess has acknowledged shooting Henry to stop the car.
In April, the Henry family filed a lawsuit against Officer Hess who was cleared of wrongdoing by a grand jury in February and later named Officer Of The Year by the Pleasantville Police Department.
