Ford was found not guilty of the most serious charges: two counts of aggravated assault against Officer David Derbish, the officer who jumped in the car and shot Ford as the car pulled away.

But the jury foreman said they were hopelessly deadlocked on five other counts: three counts of reckless endangerment, and one count each of resisting arrest and escape. The defense has asked the judge for a judgment of acquittal on those counts. The judge has yet to rule on that request. Meantime, the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office has yet to decide whether it wants to retry the case on those remaining counts.

The only conviction Ford faces is the summary count of failure to yield and one count of careless driving, imposed by Judge Donald Machen late this afternoon.

The trial wrapped up last week after days of testimony that included police officers, use of force experts and Ford himself.

Ford took the stand last Monday.

He told the jury he thought he was going to die once gunfire rang out at the end of the traffic stop. He testified he was terrified when police kept insisting he might have been Lamont Ford.

His wheelchair was lifted onto the witness stand before the jury arrived, and he testified the tone was set when the first officer to approach him snatched his license from him. Things went downhill once it took so long to determine who he was.

“I didn’t know if they were going to beat me, shoot me or tax me,” said Ford.

He claimed that the car started moving before he knew it and he had no idea an officer got into the car until he heard gunshots and smelled smoke.

The prosecution contends Ford was trying to push the police officer out of the car, when he was shot.

  • —COMMON: Man, I know I’m in love when I think about her a lot and I’m finding ways to get to that person. Even though I gotta work, even though I gotta take care of other responsibilities, I’m like yo, when am I gonna fly out and see that person? I look forward to seeing them.
  • —KENDRICK LAMAR: How do you know you’re in love? When your heart feels it instead of your mind and your penis don’t. You know, it’s deeper than that… That’s when you know.
  • —PETE ROCK: Oh man you feel it right here, *touches heart*, right there, it’s like cupid’s shooting you in the heart, that shit’s just BOOW! Lots of people say they don’t believe in love at first sight, but I do, it’s happened to me.
  • —A$AP ROCKY: You know you in love cuz you don’t want nobody else but that person. You know, that’s how you know for sure. Like you could see a million other bad bitches, but you know, but it don’t even matter, you stuck.
  • —BIG BOI: Your heart flutters a little bit, you like to kiss on the mouth a lot, your neck get hot when you kiss on the mouth, that type of stuff. Stuff like that, yea.

are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD

Plot Twist: He is able to do wandless magic because his comprehensive understanding of quantum physics means that he is the only wizard/witch to actually understand how magic works.
