Carl Glenn Wheat (319)



9/21/2000: Officers performed a traffic stop on Wheat's vehicle. Wheat tried to swallow a bag full of drugs to conceal it. Officers Darryl Wertz and Jeffery Vanover struggled with Wheat for the bag. Wheat died. The little available information said that a grand jury was presented with multiple theories as to whether neck compressions or methamphetamine use were most to blame for Wheat's death. http://amarillo.com/stories/111500/new_pathologists.shtml#.VP-UBLN4ppY
