Arrested for Failure to Identify

Police Employees Involved: Officer Vazquez and Breton

I was given a citation for “failure to identify” in Texas. Here’s what happened:

I was walking around with my Guy Fawkes mask and some kids got scared and screamed; their mom came outside and started yelling at me. Keep in mind, I was on the other side of the street, minding my business. I kept walking and walked to another neighborhood. I came back into my neighborhood a few minutes later to a few cops stopping in front of me. They asked me to show my face and take off the mask, which I did. I showed my face and then they asked me what my name was, if I had any ID, and where I live. I told them I didn’t have to show them that and I didn’t have to tell them my name or any of the information without them suspecting me of a crime. Then they cuffed me and told me it was an offense to not give them information. However, it states that they can only charge you for that if you were arrested beforehand and didn’t give them your information if you didn’t have an ID on you. I asked them to loosen the cuffs, and one officer tightened them. There are marks on my wrists from only wearing the cuffs for fifteen minutes. I asked him to put my seatbelt on, and he just slammed the door in my face. I have to go to court in June.
