Even though Bobby Yates called 911 for help, the police reports state that the the 16 year old white female called 911. The 911 tapes tell the true story. The tape however does mention that the female was so high on drugs that her speech was slurred. To secure an indictment, a photo of Bobby Yates was taken to make it appear as though he was not handicapped. Yates is confined to a wheelchair with a lower body amputation. His height was omitted and there was no explanation of not having lower limbs. This is yet an additional attempt of Lamar County Attorney to secure a conviction by any means necessary.
Bobby Yates lived in Ridgeview Town homes for 5 years without problems. He had no criminal history. On March 18, 2008 at approx 1:30 or 2 AM, Bobby Yates got a knock on his door that would change his life.
A 16 year old white female and two adult white males, asked Bobby if they could enter into his home while claiming they were locked out of their own homes. Bobby reluctantly allowed them in. Several hours later, Bobby made a 911 call. He told the operator that three people were in his home threatening his life and he was afraid of them and they would not leave. He said one of the three assaulted him by beating him in his face. Bobby can be heard on the 911 call telling the group to get out of his home and telling them not to come near him. The police came and Bobby told them the three had refused to leave and they jerked the phone from him preventing him from using it the first time he tried to call. He attempted to leave out his front door and they grabbed his wheelchair and prevented Yates from leaving. The female claimed Bobby touched her vagina even though the two men were in the same room with her — the entire time she was in Bobby’s home.
