Keene Sentinel Misreports On Derrick J’s Arrest

From the Sentinel:

A Keene man faces charges of resisting arrest and disobeying an officer after police say he led them on a chase while riding his bicycle Friday afternoon.

Derrick Joseph Horton, 22, was held at the Cheshire County jail in Keene for lack of $2,000 bail, Keene police Sgt. Jason Short said.

Police had attempted to stop Horton in connection with a warrant for criminal trespass and resisting arrest issued by the Cheshire County Sheriff’s Office, but Horton allegedly refused to stop, forcing police to chase him on his bicycle for several streets, Short said.

Horton will be arraigned Monday morning in Keene’s 8th Circuit Court District Division.

Ironically, although the Sentinel managed to get almost all their facts wrong (Derrick didn’t have a warrant!), they did get one thing right: “Derrick Joseph Horton, 22, was held at the Cheshire County jail in Keene for lack of $2,000 bail, Keene police Sgt. Jason Short said.”

In other words, Derrick spent the weekend in jail because he didn’t have the $2000 ransom that the state demanded.

Thanks for keeping it real, guys!
