The mother of an Anderson man, who shot at deputies in October during a chase, says deputies should never have initiated the chase, and he’d still be alive today if they hadn’t. 

Robert Maness, 39, had just left his brother’s house on his family’s motorcycle when two Anderson County Sheriff’s Office deputies attempted to pull him over.

The primary narrative in the incident reports says, “during the stop, Maness drove away and fired several shots at the deputies, striking the patrol vehicle that the two were occupying. Maness continued to shoot at deputies, which led the deputies to return fire.”

The timing of the gunfire has not been made clear. In a statement from October, the Sheriff’s Office said Maness did not stop and shot at deputies.
