          Update: How Mom Whose Unarmed Son Was Shot In The Driveway Of Their Home Fought Back


          May 9, 2016

          Marian’s son Robbie Tolan, a former minor league baseball player, was shot in the chest by a police officer in the driveway of her and her husband’s home in an affluent Texas neighborhood. When the family first appeared on Dr. Phil, Robbie was struggling with extreme anger, after he says his dreams of becoming a major league baseball star were crushed because the bullet ripped through his chest and lodged in his liver.

          The family fought and lost two court battles against the police department.

          After the show, Marian says she filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court and did not tell her husband or son.

          Watch the video above to see the outcome of her appeal, and how it may affect other families.

          This episode of Dr. Phil airs Tuesday. Check here to see where you can watch.
