CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - He was rushing his wife to Erlanger last More..week, and treated the red lights as stop signs. And when he didn't pull over for a police officer, the firestorm began.
The Police Chief and District Attorney both agreed, Jesse Wright's need to get his wife to the hospital outweighed the laws he broke.
He and his wife tell Eyewitness News they hope this never happens again.
Jesse Wright says Chattanooga's Police Chief was the one to deliver the news that the charges against him were dropped.
"He offered his apology on behalf of the police department, even though he was not involved himself. He felt as though that was appropriate and I appreciated that from him," says Wright.
The apology comes one week after Jesse's arrest.
