Patrolman Stevie Thompson was shot and killed after stopping a driver for DUI. The driver and her two sons were all drunk and Patrolman Thompson arrested the woman. The two sons exited the vehicle and attacked Patrolman Thompson. They gained control of his service weapon and shot him in the chest twice before freeing their mother.

All three fled, but were apprehended a short time later. The suspect who shot Patrolman Thompson was sentenced to life in prison. He was denied parole on August 14th, 2006, and again on May 15th, 2012.

Patrolman Thompson was survived by his expectant wife and young daughter. His second daughter was born three months later.

Stevie, an academy classmate (Northeast Alabama Police Academy, Jacksonville, AL--55th Session--1982), was a dedicated professional peace officer. He was struck down much too young, leaving behind a young family.

Murdered...over a DUI arrest. So senseless.

Rest easy, my Brother.
