Attorney Stephen Brandli released a final statement regarding the controversial Christmas Eve traffic stop of his client, Mark McCutcheon, by San Juan County Deputy Felix Menjivar.
Tail lights on a trailer pulled by a pickup truck driven by McCutcheon were inoperable. They had not been hooked up.
Menjivar was concerned about the safety of the passengers sitting on hay bales in the trailer since there were no brake lights.
No citation was issued.
McCutcheon is not pursuing legal action for the stop which ended his family's annual Christmas carolling outing.
The statement is posted on Brandlil.com
