In another boost to Fort Worth’s reputation, the city attorney’s office will prosecute Chad Gibson – the Rainbow Lounge patron who suffered a concussion during last summer’s botched and nationally condemned raid by Fort Worth and TABC officers – on public intoxication and assault charges for allegedly groping the ex-TABC agent who took him down. That agent, Chris Aller, was canned for “procedural violations” after an internal TABC investigation.
The NBC 5 report notes that “several of the officers who were there that night [at the Rainbow Lounge raid] sat on the opposite side of the courtroom” to watch Gibson as he pled “not guilty” and requested a trial.
Seriously, Fort Worth? Do you really want to drag yourself through this nasty and embarrassing business again?
