Man Arrested After Rushing Pregnant Wife to Hospital

Man Arrested After Rushing Pregnant Wife To Hospital

POSTED: 9:57 a.m. EDT April 20, 2004
GASTONIA, N.C. -- The cops say Jimmie Fisher resisted arrest and cursed them, but Fisher says he was in a hurry because his pregnant wife's water had broken and he was hospital-bound at 2:10 a.m. Monday.

Fisher, 48, of Stanley, N.C., dropped his wife at Gaston Memorial Hospital and was taken away in handcuffs by officers, who had stopped him for driving 45 mph in a 35 mph zone. But officers in the town of Ranlo, N.C., arrested Fisher not for speeding but for his actions after they stopped him.

Fisher admitted to cursing at the officers and pulling his arm away from them when they approached him a second time at the hospital's emergency room. Fisher also admited to speeding.

"I was under some stress, I admit that," Fisher said. "Even my wife tried to get out of the car to show them she was pregnant."

Police charged Fisher with disorderly conduct and speeding. He said he was able to walk from the Gaston County Magistrate's Office to the hospital before his wife, Rachel, gave birth to their third child, Aurora -- a healthy, 8-pound, 8-ounce girl.

Ranlo Chief Tim Anderson said he hasn't completely reviewed the incident, but stood behind his officers and said Fisher shouldn't have run toward the officers.

"When the officers realized the wife was pregnant they made getting her to the hospital their priority," Anderson said.

Fisher said after the stop he got out the car to explain his wife was in labor, but felt the officers didn't give him a chance. He said one officer aimed a handgun at him and told him to get back in his vehicle.

Anderson said the officers, whose report said Fisher tried to provoke a violent reaction, only wanted to explain at the hospital why they had stopped Fisher.

"I don't believe there is any issue," Anderson said, adding that video of the incident from a police car camera didn't show any abusive behavior by officers.
