Suspect in ramming of Fox 4 offices is released
The driver accused of intentionally ramming his truck into the KDFW-TV (Channel 4) news building has been released by the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department because a formal case hasn’t been filed against him.
Michael Fry was arrested Sept. 5 after his truck slammed into the Fox 4 offices just after 6 a.m., but the sheriff’s office can’t detain him forever without a case, sheriff’s spokesman Raul Reyna said.
“We can only hold so long if a case is not filed,” Reyna said, according to WFAA-TV (Channel 8).
Fry can be arrested again if police pursue a case against him, Reyna said.
On the day of the crash, Fry scattered papers everywhere once he got out of his truck. The fliers included news coverage of 2012 incident when Fry was a passenger in a pickup that rammed a Denton County deputy’s squad car after the deputy stopped the truck near Krum.
An officer shot and killed the driver, 21-year-old Roberto Hernandez.
“They tried to kill me. And they missed. And hit him,” says a handwritten note scribbled in the margins of the flier. “They used brainwashing tactics.”
