CASE ENTRY

Vanderhoef v. Dixon

Allegation: Teen driver crosses median, causes accident. As he exits the car, the other driver orders him and his two teen passengers to the ground at gunpoint. Yikes! The other driver is an off-duty reserve police officer with the city of Maryville, Tenn. And any reasonable officer would have known not to point guns at people’s heads in these circumstances, holds the Sixth Circuit. No qualified immunity.
