Roberts wrote in his citizen complaint that a sheriff’s deputy “started following me” as he drove on Pitts Road in Richmond around 9:55 p.m. on March 10.

“I came onto . . . [a] stop sign and the officer was still following me,” Roberts wrote. “As I turn into my community of Pecan Grove the officer was still behind me, and then as I’m almost to the driveway of my home, he turned his light on me.”

At the time, Roberts wrote, “I did not know why I was getting pulled over. So I got out of my car with my hand[s] up. Then the officer told me to get back in the car and put my hands on the steering wheel. He told my wife [when she came outside] to get back in the house before he arrest[s] her.”

The Texas Commission on Jail Standards cited Waller County jail Thursday for not properly monitoring inmates but wouldn't say whether its citation is related to Bland's death. She was arrested in Waller County, Texas after a routine traffic stop but was found hanging in her jail cell days later.

“Which I wasn’t,” Roberts wrote, adding that the deputy “gave me a hard time for insurance.” He added that he felt “so harassed I couldn’t even remember where my insurance paper was in my car. [B]ut why wouldn’t I have insurance on [a Porsche]? That doesn’t make any sense.”

Roberts and his wife, he wrote, were “embarrassed and harassed in our own community and in front of our home where we are supposed to feel safe.”

“Had my client not maintained his composure during that stop, it could have taken another turn,” Hovell-Cox said, adding that Roberts’s citation for speeding was quickly withdrawn.

Fort Bend District Attorney Brian M. Middleton’s office said Friday in a statement if Roberts “files a formal criminal complaint, the matter will be referred to the Texas Rangers for an independent investigation.”

The district attorney said this is part of the protocol for reviewing such cases.

“This is the normal process to provide an unbiased and independent investigation when it involves a member of the law enforcement community,” Middleton said. “We will consider the Ranger’s recommendation if, and when, any investigation concludes, but it is premature and improper for me to speculate on that at this time.”
