Texas man says cops beat him after he pulled over from diabetic shock

A 70-year-old man claims he was severely beaten by a pair of cops after he stopped on a Texas road because he fell into diabetic shock.

Thomas Mathieu said he only remembers pulling over in a turning lane in San Antonio before the Jan. 13 scuffle with police that put him in a hospital with three broken ribs and several cuts and bruises to his body.
“None of it adds up, because I am basically a gentle person,” he told WOAI-TV.
“Why in the world would they do this?”

A video of the encounter that was recorded by a police cruiser’s dashboard camera was recently released to the news station and shows the moment officers find Mathieu slumped over the wheel of his car.
The footage shows the officers ordering Mathieu out of the car and threatening to pull him out if he ignored their commands.

But as they tried to pull the elderly man out of the driver’s seat, the officers said Mathieu put his hand on the gear shifter.
