According to an accident report filed by Warsaw Police Department, at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 5, a school resource officer at Warsaw Community High School came upon a male juvenile, identified as Andrew D. Brock, 15, of Warsaw, on the ground on his side near the entrance to the football field at WCHS.
According to the report, Brock got off his feet when the officer pulled up and was very disoriented with significant bleeding to the knee and head. Brock reportedly collapsed as the officer approached him. The officer and Brock’s aunt, who had just arrived to the scene to pick him up, kept Brock in the officer’s car until medical attention arrived to the scene.
According to video surveillance of the incident, Bailey R. Whitford, 16, of Warsaw, was driving a pickup when he stopped, and Brock approached the vehicle. Brock is then reportedly seen climbing onto the running boards of the pickup. Whitford is then seen pulling away. Officers noted that the vehicle was not traveling at an unusually high rate of speed and only traveled a short distance when Brock either voluntarily jumped from the side of the truck or fell. Brock is then seen tumbling over and hitting the pavement. Brock then rolled from the roadway into a ditch area that had large, white rocks in the basin. Whitford stopped nearby and Brock stood, rubbing the top of his head then exited the rocks and exchanged words with Whitford. Whitford then got back into his truck and Brock, who appeared relatively fine, walked away.
Brock was then seen trying to compose himself when he stumbled backward and fell, striking his head onto the pavement and rolling into the position police later discovered him in. Police noted he appeared briefly unconscious at this point.
Police interviewed Whitford who stated that Brock asked him to go after climbing onto his truck and then jumped from the vehicle. Whitford stated that Brock had voluntarily jumped from the vehicle and had not been thrown. Brock stated he only remembered events before and after the incident but not the incident itself.
