An instructor I know who trains security personnel and police officers told me that a shoe can be legally considered a deadly weapon if it is used to kick someone. He also told me that it is standard procedure for police to confiscate a person's shoe as evidence when they investigate an assault in which that person kicked somebody (at least here in California anyway). Interesting, eh?
So, I'm curious, how often have any of you LEO's out there confiscated someone's shoe as evidence in an assault?
Or better yet, have any of you ever had the cops take your shoe?
