Foley still unable to walk after being shot by police
Posted: Oct.10, 2006, 12:06 am EDT

San Diego Chargers starting linebacker Steve Foley, shot by an off-duty policeman Sept. 3, has undergone multiple surgeries since the controversial incident and cannot walk.

The 31-year-old was released from the hospital on Sept. 27 after least five surgical procedures. One of the bullets severed the main artery in his left leg and doctors had to graft a vein from his right leg to make sure the blood was flowing properly. (He also sustained a wound on his hand, which may be a grazing shot, but that is still unclear).

"Meanwhile, in the beginning of September, the team reportedly brought in a member of the San Diego Sheriff's Department to speak to the players about the incident involving Foley."

Musta meant the beginning of October.

Anahoo, thanx for that update, Johnny!!:tup:

That is funny.

I sure hope he recovers fully, and in time for the Chargers to make an informed decision on his future with the Chargers, as opposed to his health still being cloudy, and we let him go, and he ends up healing fine for another team.

This just seems surreal this could happen.

Then again it just may be the weed. :lol:

Hopefully he is out of the woods with that vein transplant, but I wouldn't count on it. The fact that he severed a main artery in his leg, is a major cause for concern at least for the next few months.

I wish him the best.

california "police" suck. i cant believe this mansker dude would feel "cornered" in a cul de sac... thas an oxymoron if i ever knew one. but seriously, this really seems sketchy. just the fact that foley is pleading not guilty, when there are lab test results on his blood, means that some shady shiz is goin on.

I'm not completely buying Mansker's testimony... although from the likes of this story, he's doing a pretty good job...

I'm sure on cross examination he'll need to come up with an explanation why he didn't just wait for on duty officers to come.... go to Foley's house, get him out of bed, and arrest him on suspicion of drunk driving. Mansker only needed to follow him into his neighborhood and wait for on duty officers to arrive.

Yup, just not buying that he had given up his little pursuit... I think he had bigger ideas and I think he knew who he was pursuing.

Did he really say on the stand that after he had initially shot Foley that Foley still reached inside his waistband?

That just smells really fishy

I am wondering how his is going to explain how he shot Foley in the back of the leg.

:yes: Me too...

I'm thinking he'll say he also saw him reaching for a weapon that just happened to be behind him. You know, when he couldn't find a weapon in his waistband, he had to be looking for one somewhere behind him... :icon_shrug: :rolleyes:
