Sarah Beck brought her 2-year-old son to Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine on Feb. 25 and was told he had a temperature of more than 105.
…Police were contacted after a doctor reported to the Department of Child Services that the child never made it to the hospital, as she had recommended.
When police arrived, Beck and her husband, Brooks Bryce, wouldn’t let them into the house because they said the fever had broken and the child was no longer in danger.
…”He’s doing fine. His fever broke, he’s under 100 degrees, and he’s doing just fine,” Bryce said.
When the officer told Bryce that officers need to see the boy for themselves, Bryce responds, “no you don’t.”
…Bryce once again refused over the phone to let officers into the home and said, “you’re not going to make me go to the hospital and spend three grand on an emergency room visit right now.”
…Almost three hours after the first knock on the door, officers forced their way in with guns out and ready to fire.
What a shit-show.
