Takara Davis - 13-Year-Old Teen Given Jaywalking Ticket By Asshat Cop While Hospitalized In Medically Induced Coma

Las Vegas, Nevada (The Weekly Vice) - Takara Davis, a 13-year-old Las Vegas girl who was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street, was cited for jaywalking - and the ticket came at a precarious time.

She was being rushed into surgery under a medically induced coma when the officer handed her mother the citation.

According to police, the accident occurred Tuesday afternoon as the teen was walking home from school and attempted to cross the street to catch up with friends.

Kellie Obong, the teen's mother says an officer from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department delivered a citation to her at the hospital as her daughter was being prepared for surgery.

"Every time (the doctors) come in, they say the bleeding hasn't stopped on the brain. She's got no feeling or movement on her left side at all," said Obong.

"He (the officer) said she was jaywalking. She has got to go to court on March 6th," stated Obong. "If she was jaywalking, then she was jaywalking - but maybe you give it to me at a later time. Don't give it to me when they are rushing her into the operating room."

Metro police aren't commenting on the case since there is a pending investigation, however, they did release a short statement.

"Our officers conduct themselves in a professional and compassionate way. We wouldn't do anything deliberately insensitive."
