  1. "His last arrest was on October 4 at the 800 block of Eureka. by Officer M Paris." What streets? Why arrested? How adjudicated? Why was he not arrested at the scene of this assault AND battery?

    1. its because the witness left in an ambulance without giving a statement. indirect evidence is not viable in a court of law and therefore you cant arrest someone for indirect evidence
