About 10:20 a.m., the sheriff’s office received a 911 call about a dispute between Thedford and his landlord. A deputy spoke with Jessie Thedford, who was not cooperative and was detained. Another deputy arrived, Thedford was searched and a substance suspected to be methamphetamine was found on him. Thedford was arrested, handcuffed and put in the back of a patrol car. He slipped through the partition into the driver’s seat and tried to drive toward deputies and the landlord. Deputies ordered him to stop, but Thedford did not comply, and police shot and killed him.
