It started with a traffic stop of a vehicle flying through the late-night streets of Newark, NJ. It turned in to a high-speed chase of two career criminals armed with a gun and a load of heroin. But now Officer Jovanny Crespo is facing the possibility of life in prison for protecting himself, his fellow police officers, and the community.
Deputy Mike Holmes was just attempting a traffic stop on a reckless, speeding vehicle. Little did he know that what was about to happen would change his life forever. After a brief pursuit, he wound up looking down the barrel of the suspect’s gun – then nearly run over by the suspect’s car. He would survive and escape physical injury, but now he is facing a manslaughter charge and the possibility of 15 years behind bars.
