The problem is that the off duty officer was mad because a cigarette butt landed on his vehicle. The off duty Arapahoe County deputy should have just called in the license plate to dispatch and hade a uniformed officer with marked car make contact with the subjects. I'm sure things wouldn't have escalated as it did that fateful night. The deputy didn't follow policy and do this and instead got directly involved which was wrong. I think Arapahoe County should settle the case.

Well like I stated previous, Why would the family want evidence concealed?
Logic says the family would be the first ones that want ALL evidence available brought in front of a jury and or court.
