Lawsuits mount for maker of protective police vests

By Dana Littlefield
The San Diego Union Tribune

OCEANSIDE, Calif. - What Oceanside police Officer Tony Zeppetella didn't know last year when he pulled over a suspicious car in a parking lot proved fatal.

He didn't know the driver was armed and on drugs and that in the ensuing gunfight the driver would get off 13 shots.

And he didn't know that the protective vest he was wearing was made of a "miracle" fiber called Zylon that was developing a reputation for failure.
