Politico Tarence Maddox Comeback In The Dotte Proves Problematic

We've been following this politico's career since he endured "issues" at Legoland nearly a decade ago

Since then it hasn't been smooth sailing  . . . From Plaza protest to rebuke from colleagues . . . There's a long list of "concerns" about this politico.

Here's one more to throw on the pile . . .

Tarence Maddox, 40, could face jail time if convicted of the two misdemeanor charges. He is a candidate in the Nov. 7 general election for the District 4 seat on the Unified Government’s Board of Commissioners, a seat he held a decade ago.

The charges stem from an Oct. 14, 2022, incident. Shortly after 6 p.m. that day, an officer in Overbrook pulled Maddox over for speeding in Osage County, police said. The officer took Maddox, who allegedly had a suspended driver’s license, into custody.

Maddox began complaining of medical issues, so the officer accompanied an ambulance to The University of Kansas Health System campus in Topeka.

Once there, Maddox was “combative and uncooperative with hospital staff,” Overbrook Police Chief Eric Carlson said in a statement at the time. During an altercation, security officers used a Taser on Maddox, and Topeka officers were called to help subdue him, police said.
