Lawyer: Castile pulled over because he matched robbery suspect

 


A St. Anthony police officer pulled over Philando Castile because he was driving with a broken tail or brake light and he believed that Castile looked like a suspect from an armed robbery nearby that was reported a few days earlier, the officer’s attorney told the Star Tribune on Sunday.

“All he had to have was reasonable suspicion to pull him over,” attorney Thomas Kelly said of his client, Jeronimo Yanez.

Kelly said his client shot Castile the night of July 6 in Falcon Heights “after he reacted to the actions of Mr. Castile.”
