Pastor Steven Anderson Taser Case

Steven Anderson was beaten and tasered by U.S. Border Patrol agents and Arizona DPS officers

Steven Anderson was beaten and tasered by U.S. Border Patrol agents and Arizona DPS officers at a Homeland Security checkpoint East of Yuma in April of 2009 for refusing to answer questions. He was subsequently charged by Arizona DPS officers with several violations of state law even though he had been seized at a federal checkpoint by federal agents allegedly enforcing federal law.

Anderson, a pastor of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona made national news following the confrontation with the United States Border Patrol agents at an interior checkpoint on Interstate 8, about 70 miles (110 km) east of Yuma, Arizona. He refused to move his car or roll down his windows, triggering a 90-minute standoff and the calling of Arizona Department of Public Safety officers to the scene. The confrontation ended when authorities broke Anderson’s car windows, tased him, and forced him out of the vehicle.

At his arraignment in April of 2009, Anderson pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor counts of resisting a lawful order. On December 16, 2009, Mr. Anderson was in Yuma, Arizona Justice Court attending a pre-trial hearing regarding those charges with his attorney Marc Victor. By the end of the day, his attorney Mr. Victor was successful in having the charges dismissed with prejudice.

I am new to AOR, having just joined a few days ago (May 2024). I am very impressed with their... customer service; kudos to Braeden Victor, Mike Wasdin, and the others who have assisted me via the Support email team. Being new to self defense, I had tons of questions about the contract, emergency form, and general questions. Some were probably not the most intelligent, but everyone treated me with respect and answered issues they have probably answered a thousand times. I sincerely hope I never have to use the firm, but if I do, I feel confident in receiving the best service.read more
