Christopher Adams, a 38-year-old Wisconsin man, was hit by a squad car in October while traveling east on Highway 73 South and waiting to make a left turn. It was then that Deputy Haldeman looked down at his phone, thinking Adams had already turned and he hit his mo-ped. This knocked Adams off and onto the hood of the Deputy’s car and then onto the road.
Adams is now suing the county, the Sheriff’s Department, the deputy and their insurance companies. He is seeking compensation for pain, suffering, medical expenses, loss of income and possible permanent disability. Haldeman received a citation for inattentive driving.
