21-year old Leon Ford Junior of East Liberty was found not guilty of assaulting police officers during a November 2012 traffic stop in Highland Park. The jury deadlocked on 5 misdemeanor charges including reckless endangerment, and escape. The Allegheny County District Attorney's office must decide whether or not to refile those misdemeanor charges and re-try Ford. He was shot 5 times by police during the traffic stop and is now paralyzed.
