Joseph Ladd (10530)

6/1/2015: Officer Eric Hughes pulled over a vehicle driven by Ladd's girlfriend because Ladd, her passenger, fit the description of a suicidal man. The vehicle drove away during the stop, dragging Hughes about 70 feet. Hughes used a stun gun at some point and fatally shot Ladd after he reached in his waistband for a semiautomatic pistol.
