9/26/2011: Police approached Speakman as he sat with another man at 1:40 a.m. on a commercial boat ramp, drinking alcohol at the water's edge. Speakman challenged the officer's authority to search them for weapons and as he handed his lap dog to the other man, he revealed the butt of a .22. They fell into a physical struggle for control of that weapon, then the officer fired his gun and fatally wounded Speakman. http://tbo.com/news/shooting-of-teen-justifiable-271865
