Deputy files civil lawsuit against 9-1-1 caller after he was injured during assault at her home

It’s something you would probably least expect after calling 9-1-1 during an emergency — a lawsuit. If a deputy was hurt, would you be financially responsible?

A deputy is now suing a woman who called for help during an emergency. It all stems from a deputy-involved shooting that happened in Katy last year.

The deputy says he was injured when she made that call from her subdivision. In this lawsuit, he claims the homeowner failed to adequately warn 9-1-1 of the dangerous situation he was walking into.
