    A 24-year-old UNM law school student says he was kneed in the groin by an APD officer so hard, it shattered one of his testicles.
    It was after midnight Friday. Law student Jeremy Martin was driving a carload of friends through the UNM area when police say he ran a stop sign.
    According to the police report, APD officer Padilla said Martin seemed drunk and admitted to having three beers. After a field sobriety test, Officer Padilla told Martin to sit on the curb, but says Martin resisted.


    Martin's attorney, Sam Bregman says what happened next is hard to stomach.
    "This officer felt the necessity to knee him so directly and with so much blunt force that it shattered his testicle," Bregman said.
    Jeremy was booked on DWI and marijuana possession charges--both misdemeanors.


    "He was taken to Presbyterian Hospital where he had emergency surgery to have his testicle removed," Bregman said.
    Bregman is in the middle of filing a lawsuit against the officers involved, but most of all, an answer to this:
    "How does a DWI investigation with a first year law student -- when he absolutely did nothing to provoke the officer -- result in the shattering of his testicle and emergency surgery to remove it?" Bregman asked.


    There is also a confusing line in the police report filed by the officers who arrested Martin.
    The report says he blew a stop sign while traveling north on Wellesley Place, but there is no way to travel northbound on Wellseley to the stop sign in question.

    No, funny enough (or not, actually) my buddy that did it with me is pretty sick. He came down with Bell's Palsy. :nocheer:

    That being the case, Schmoopy would be the perfect replacement.
