    Cop who shot Chargers linebacker honored for making DUI arrests

    3:47 p.m. March 17, 2008

    DEL MAR – Coronado police Officer Aaron Mansker was among several peace officers honored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving during its annual luncheon March 13, Coronado City Manager Mark Ochenduszko said.
    Mansker was named Coronado's Outstanding DUI Officer of the Year for having made 57 drunken-driving arrests during 2007.

    Mansker, 24, previously attracted media attention for a case involving drunken driving Sept. 3, 2006, when he shot and wounded former Chargers linebacker Steve Foley after a confrontation near Foley's Poway home.

    Foley pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drunken-driving charge and was placed on five years' probation last May. He was released from the Chargers in February 2007 and has filed a lawsuit against the city of Coronado and Mansker, contending he was unjustly shot.

    After reviewing the case, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis concluded in December the shooting was justified because Mansker acted in lawful self-defense.

    For the lawyers out there ---

    Did Foley file a civil suit against the city?

    If so, what does the D/A have to do with anything??

    that's what I thought,

    I guess the wording in the article was a little confusing, they made it sound like the D/A had something to do with him filing suit.


    :tdown:

    I hope he wins and wins big against the City and the MADD poster boy!

    What's more dangerous: Driving drunk or shooting people?

    In my opinion both Foley and Mansker were in the wrong. It does not make mansker right for shooting Foley because he was drunk. It is as well does not make Foley right for driving home drunk.

    Off topic a bit here: OrangeMan could you please change your Sig to something else. Something with class please. It would be much appreciated.

    Back on topic: In my opinion Mansker was wrong for shooting Foley while he was off duty. He should have called for backup for a uniformed Cop to arrive and handle the situation.

    I can take a joke like anyone else. Here is where I go BUT, your sig is in my opinion not funny in any way. Maybe to another Broncos fan it is funny but to this Chargers fan it is not.

    I understand it is just a sig and it will not kill me. It is in my opinion not showing class as a Broncos fan in a Chargers site. Please show some class.

    Now we need to get this back on topic please.

    Mansker is an over-zealous douchebag. He went WAY above & beyond, & not in a good way. :icon_sad:

    My group, DAMM (Drunks Against Mad Mothers) says guys like Mansker must be Bronco fans!!! :icon_tease:

    Fact: Foley is a criminal.
    He was 31 at the time of the shooting. He was not a kid.
    This was not his first, second or third alcohol related run in with the police. More like his fourth, fifth, sixth, etc.
    Had he got away with this one, he would have continued drinking and driving until he killed somebody or himself.

    Other Fact: Mansker could have handled the situation better but it's not like he saw Foley was drunk and felt he deserved to get shot for it. That's a fairy tale that some people in here like to believe.


    Again. The situation should have been handled better but most posters completely dismiss that Foley is a multiple repeat offender.
    He obviously has zero concern about anybody else's safety. His attitude is "I'm rich and I'll drive drunk if I want to. Those laws don't apply to me."

    I agree with Turtle that there were two wrongs but I have a hard time feeling sorry for someone who never learns their lesson after multiple arrests.

    If anything is mad its this giving mankster an award. The orginazation madd is just a tool for politicans and police forces to rake in huge amounts of money.

    Whats far more dangerous are people driving while talking on a cell phone. But since the women of madd probably all do this they don't want to bring this up. Its all bullsheet.

    The seat belt law is total bullsheet.
