On the morning of June 10th, US Army veteran Dynell Lane had to use the restroom at Serious Pizza in Dallas, Texas. Two off-duty police officers who were handling security at the bar wouldn’t let him in.
According to The Dallas Morning news, “Many states — including Texas — have a restroom access law known as ‘Ally’s Law,’ which states people lawfully on the premises of an establishment should be allowed access to a restroom if they provide evidence they have a medical condition that requires immediate access to a toilet facility.”
Even after Lane presented the police with medical documentation detailing his health problems as a direct result of his deployment to the Middle East, they still refused to help him. Lane then dialed 911, but by the time police arrived, the injured veteran had wet himself.
Video of the unpleasant interaction between the police officers and the crippled veteran has gone viral.
Lane recently told an oversight committee looking into the incident, “The Dallas Police Department failed me.”
