Shelton, WA (4-26-15) — Ok I have had A LOT of people ask what happened to my son..I have been given permission from our attorneys to post..I said I would leave the police officer’s name out of it..but he asked why? So here goes..feel free to share!
I live in a small community–Shelton, Washington. My son Steven failed to check in one week with his DOC officer…at which time a warrant for his arrest was issued. He was looking at 30 days! On April 25th [It was the 26th in the wee hours.] the car my son was riding in was pulled over..my son decided to jump out and run…officer Robert Andrew Auderer [graduated from BLEA ~ 6/2012, DOB: 12-27-76] began a foot pursuit..at which time he decided to taze him..he was tazed in the back of his neck where it meets the hard part of your skull!
My son was on the ground rendered UN-moveable when officer Robert Andrew Auderer decided to stomp on my son’s head..breaking his eye socket, cheek bone and nose..he even put in his report that he punched my son in the side.
MY SON WAS NOT FIGHTING…SO I ASK WHY???? The reports say my son was taken to Mason General for “minor” injuries. I was denied 3 visits with my son! And then on April 28th my son was transported to the Harborview trauma center in Seattle for those said minor injuries! Yesterday he had face reconstruction surgery at Harborview where the plastic surgeon put metal plate and screws in his cheek fixed his eye socket and nasal passage..he is recovering now!
