” A Lone Jack grandfather says he fears for his life after a run in with police.
Bill Swan was on his tractor when he took issue with a utility crew trying to dig on his property. His family says that before long the Lone Jack police arrived and Swan was left bloodied and more from being yanked off the tractor.
” I’m afraid for us to even drive out of our driveway or to get on the street. I don’t know what they will do,” Libby Swan, Bill’s wife, said.
Libby Swan hasn’t asked her husband all of what happened because she doesn’t want to put him through the ordeal right now.
” It’s very unnerving that something happened to him,” she said.
She can only guess that the 80-year-old ended up with a bloodied face, bruised hip and two ribs broken because his hearing is really bad.
” Sometimes I have to get right in his face and talk to him,” Libby Swan said.
The Swan’s grandson says the arresting officers told him they yanked Bill Swan off his tractor because he refused to get off when they ordered him to, then he tried to run over the officers. He said Bill Swan was booked for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault on an officer.”
