Alton Sterling History Assaulting Cops With Gun

It has been discovered, via an old Baton Rouge police report, that Alton Sterling was shot while committing the same old crimes he had been arrested for seven years ago. In May 2009, the police were called on Sterling for selling bootleg CDs on a street corner. When the officer stopped this knucklehead, and asked if he had any weapons on him, he didn’t answer. The officer proceeded to pat down Alton Sterling when Sterling started reaching for his pocket. Sterling then spun around and started to fight the police officer.

During the struggle, both the officer and Sterling landed on the ground. A black semi-automatic hand gun fell from Sterling’s waist. Luckily, this hero was able to call for assistance and keep this violent criminal subdued until backup arrived. Sterling was arrested for selling illegal CDs, possessing a stolen handgun, possessing marijuana, and resisting arrest. Sterling received a paltry two-year sentence for his multitude of crimes, including attacking a police officer. One would think Sterling would have learned his lesson. However, this career criminal still thought it was a good idea to sell illegal CDs with an illegal firearm and to fight the police.

CBS News Reports:

Documents show that, in May 2009, Sterling fought with cops outside a convenience store where he was selling CDs while carrying a gun.

In the report dated May 29, 2009, the officer said he was dispatched to a convenience store after getting a complaint about a subject “on the corner selling CDs” and that the subject had pulled a gun on someone.

According to the officer’s report, when he arrived at the store, he spotted the suspect, whom he later identified as Sterling, carrying a crate of CDs.

The officer asked Sterling to put his hand on the hood of his police car and asked if Sterling had any weapons on him. The report says Sterling did “not answer” and, as the officer continued to pat him down, Sterling started reaching for his pocket.

The officer went on to say in the report that Sterling suddenly spun around and the two began to struggle. The officer and Sterling hit the ground. The officer said he was able to call for backup as Sterling tried to push him off.

“While wrestling with this subject on the ground, a black semi-auto hand gun fell from this subject’s waist band at this time,” the report states.

A deputy with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office arrived as the officer was on the ground with Sterling. The two eventually were able to get Sterling into handcuffs. “Sterling was then escorted to my unit, where he continued to fight with officers,” the report ends.

After that incident, Baton Rouge Police charged Sterling with possession of marijuana, sound reproduction prohibited (for the CDs), illegal possession of a firearm with drugs, resisting an officer and illegal possession of a stolen firearm, says WAFB.

Sterling pleaded guilty to illegal carrying of a weapon with a controlled dangerous substance. On July 19, 2011, he was sentenced to five years in prison, where he was until being granted parole on Dec. 5, 2013.

I guess some people never learn and thankfully these heroes did not fall victim to this violent criminal. Alton Sterling was shot because he could not learn a simple lesson, don’t try to kill police officers.
