A Remarkable Ruling in San Antonio

Texas Law Shield wants to alert our members to a remarkable jury decision in San Antonio, acquitting an armed homeowner who wounded a police officer during a nighttime raid.

KSAT-TV reported that Adrian Perryman says he opened fire because he believed a home invasion was underway. He wounded a police officer, but claims he tossed his firearm once he saw they were cops and not criminals.

It took a jury in San Antonio nine hours of deliberation to find Perryman not guilty on four counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer earlier this week. The raid occurred at Perryman’s home back in October 26, 2010.

Police officers testified that they shouted, “Police! Police!” as they broke down the door and then again when they were inside the home.
