Investigators with the Houston Police Department say it was back in May when a 14 year old Kingwood resident was hit on his bike while leaving the Walgreen’s on W. Lake Houston.
The teenager told investigators while he was in the yellow crossing area he encountered a police officer in a marked unit. He says that officer told him to go. The 14 year old says when he did that’s when the officer hit him and drove off.
The only description HPD is working on has led them from Kingwood to the Humble Police Department.
The description of the police unit that hit the 14 year old was a white and black SUV with gold letters. It was sort of like the one you see here at Humble PD. In fact, there are several vehicles fitting that description at the department.
As a result we’ve learned investigators from HPD wanted to interview every officer who drives SUVs at Humble PD.
The attorney who represents the cops at Humble, Greg Cagle, tells fox 26 news that was too wide of a net. He says he refused to allow the cops to participate in the investigation.
But HPD didnt stop there with their probe of the hit and run at Walgreen’s in Kingwood. Investigators have been able to get those they want to question at Humble slapped with subpoena from the Harris County Grand Jury. That subpoena is confirmed by Humble.
As for the 14 year old who says he was hit by the cop in the SUV…he was treated at Kingwood Medical Center for lacerations to the arm and released.
Statement from Humble PD:
Good Afternoon Isiah,
The Houston Police Department has released very little information to us about FSRA Investigation that they are working other than the fact they are conducting the investigation. We did receive a Grand Jury Subpoena, unfortunately I cannot go into details about the subpoena because of the investigation. When and if I receive any information from HPD I will fill you in with all the details.
