Victim of Botched Ft. Bend SWAT Raid Gets Outpouring of Support

By Greg Groogan, Special Projects Reporter

 HOUSTON (FOX 26)Chad Chadwick broke not a single law, but that didn’t protect him from being shot, stun grenade, Tased, brutally beaten by a SWAT team and then charged with six criminal offenses including felony assault on a police officer.

It took three years, his life savings and the blessing of justice minded juries to finally clear his name and cast serious doubt on the method and motives of law enforcement in Ft. Bend County.

“They came in did what they did, figured out that they messed up and now they are doing everything they can to cover it up. They treated a normal American citizen like an animal. It’s not right,” said Chadwick.

Chad’s lawyer, former U.S. Attorney Mervyn Mosbacker took it further.

“I think the police made a mistake in the way they responded and then they tried to cover up that mistake essentially,” said Mosbacker.

Tuesday Fox 26 revealed how a simple 2011 welfare check by Missouri City Police on a sleeping Chadwick turned into a brutal display of excessive force and what Chad contends was a calculated effort by prosecutors to justify a botched home invasion.

The story has sparked an outpouring of support, none more important to Chadwick, than that received from a daughter living hundreds of miles away.

“I got the most amazing response and she told me how proud she was. This is helping, this is definitely helping,” said Chadwick.

It has been a battle that Chadwick couldn’t have waged without the uncommon integrity of his employer, who not only believed the longtime energy industry manager’s account of events, but also actively aided the effort to see justice prevail.

“This man instead of firing me said, ‘When I hired you, I hired you into a family’. He stood by that. I don’t think he understands what family means to me because I didn’t have any growing up,” said Chadwick.

“Had he not given men the support he has, I would definitely be in prison right now. I would not have been able to afford to defend myself,” added Chadwick.

Chadwick is seeking accountability from those who he believes wronged him in Federal Court.

AbuseFt. Bend Police, Prosecutors Accused of Abuse in SWAT Incident

HOUSTON (FOX 26) – Chad Chadwick has something many citizens can only covet – a spotless record.

“These cops are out of control. They are ruining good people’s lives. I am a good man. I have done everything I can to show that, as a father, as a citizen, as a worker,” said Chadwick.

But on the night of September 27th, 2011 Chadwick’s commitment to living within the law did him no good at all.

It started when a friend concerned for Chadwick’s emotional well-being called Missouri City police to Chad’s Sienna apartment where he’d been distraught, drinking and unknown to anyone, had gone to sleep in the bathtub.

A SWAT team was summoned.

“They told a judge I had hostages. They lied to a judge and told him I had hostages in my apartment and they needed to enter,” said Chadwick.

Chadwick did own a single shotgun, but had threatened no one, not even himself. Chadwick’s firearm possession apparently prompted SWAT to kick in his door, launch a stun grenade into the bathroom and storm in, according to Chadwick, without announcing their identity.

“While I had my hands up naked in the shower they shot me with a 40 millimeter non-lethal round,” said Chadwick.

A second stun grenade soon followed.

“I turned away, the explosion went off, I opened my eyes the lights are out and here comes a shield with four or five guys behind it. They pinned me against the wall and proceeded to beat the crap out of me,” said Chadwick.

That’s when officers shot the unarmed Chadwick in the back of the head with a Taser at point blank range.

“They claimed I drew down with a shampoo bottle and a body wash bottle,” said Chadwick.

And it wasn’t over.

“They grabbed me by my the one hand that was out of the shower and grabbed me by my testicles slammed me on my face on the floor and proceeded to beat me more,” said Chadwick.

Chadwick, who hadn’t broken a single law when SWAT burst through his door, was taken to the Ft. Bend County Jail with a fractured nose, bruised ribs and what’s proven to be permanent hearing loss.

He was held in an isolation cell for two full days.

“Instead of apologizing to this man and asking let us see what we can do to help you to make you whole again, they concocted criminal charges against this man, one after another, after another,” said Quanell X who believes the prosecution of Chadwick was designed to fend off civil liability.

Ft. Bend County District Attorney John Healy sought to indict Chadwick on two felony counts of assaulting a police officer, but a Grand Jury said no law was broken.

It could have stopped there, but Healy’s prosecutors tried misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest, calling more than a dozen officers to testify. Those charges were dropped as well.

A month ago, three years after the SWAT raid, a jury found Chad Chadwick not guilty of interfering with police. With tears in their eyes members of the jury offered the exonerated defendant comforting hugs.

“They tried to make me a convict. It broke me financially, bankrupted me. I used my life savings, not to mention, I lost my kids,” said Chadwick.

“This type of police abuse and excessive use of force and concoction of criminal charges against innocent people is not just happening to black people, its happening to white people too,” said Quanell X who is assisting Chadwick in getting the story of his ordeal to the media.

For Chadwick some of the damage will never be repaired.

“All I could think about is, what are my daughters going to think? My goal in life is to be a father that my kids are proud of. That’s it,” said Chadwick, a long time manager in the energy industry.

The SWAT team that took Chadwick into custody and testified against him was comprised of officers from Missouri City, Sugar Land, Stafford and the Ft. Bend County Sheriff’s Department.

Ft. Bend County District Attorney John Healy declined to comment on camera, but did say he stands by his decision to prosecute Chadwick, despite the multiple no-bills and not guilty verdict.

Asked how much the case cost taxpayers, Healy said “I wasn’t keeping a tally.”
