Wheeler refused to give a urine sample several times and was told he would be forcibly cathetered if he did not willingly submit. According to a police affidavit Wheeler continued to refuse then became violent forcing officers to apply leather restraints and tether him to a gurney. Wheeler continued to resist, grabbing his penis so they could not apply a catheter, and thrashing around violently forcing the attending police officer to taser him on several occasions before they were able to complete the procedure.

The incident prompted Wheeler to file a lawsuit against the City of Orlando Police Department and the officer in question, Peter Linnekamp, for damages for “mental suffering, embarrassment” and “severe emotional distress”. The suit was dismissed by the court who founded that the police had used “necessary force”.
