  • Police Drag 65-Year-Old Woman From Car During Traffic Stop, Video Shows

The officer calls for someone to help him get her out of the vehicle, as he appears to pull on the woman's arm. "Shut the f*** up and get out of the vehicle".

The Alpharetta Police Department posted a video on Facebook Thursday including a statement from Public Safety Chief John Robison and footage from the squad vehicle showing the incident, which took place May 4 during a traffic stop at Ga. He added that there were aspects of the video that "simply do not represent who we are as an organization".

He added, "I do not feel I will get a fair internal affairs investigation from you due to the comments you made on Facebook prior to interviewing any of the other officers, or even me".

"I did what was necessary to complete the arrest by raising my voice and using verbal commands using heavy control talk with profanity", he wrote in his resignation letter, according to ABC affiliate WSB. The officer continued to ask Campbell to exit the vehicle and eventually called for backup. I couldn't believe it.

New perforated brake discs together with special brake callipers and pads have also been added offering superior stopping ability. The sports seat in the inside wears newly designed microfiber upholstery that matches trim on the door cards and gear lever .

The footage that Robison released shows the May 4 traffic stop of 65-year-old Rose Campbell, who was pulled over for failing to stay in her lane.

In a statement posted on Facebook, a spokesperson with the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety said the woman had refused to sign her ticket during a traffic stop on May 4 and was told she would be placed under arrest if she did not cooperate. Georgia law requires motorists to either sign a ticket or be taken to jail. "I remind you that I did not make the traffic stop, did not begin the use of force, did respond with emergency equipment, did properly analyze the situation, did render the vehicle safe, did get the suspects attention and out of the auto, did effectively get her detached from the seatbelt and did get her handcuffed with limited force". After she refused, he opened her door. He told her she was under arrest for disorderly conduct and she replied, "No, I'm not!"

At the time I arrived on scene, I saw officers unsuccessfully trying to effectuate the arrest of Ms. Campbell. In the footage, as officers surround her outside of the vehicle, she repeatedly asks for a supervisor. Rather than let an independent agency or officer review my performance, you have all but issued a statement finding my actions unworthy, unreasonable, and in violation of policy. Officer James Legg's resignation letter reads. She stepped out, looked at Legg and responded, "Who are you talking to?" Campbell was shaken by the experience, and screamed in fear as he began apprehending her.

During this particular stop, you will see that the driver became so upset that she struck the officer with the door of her vehicle.

Leroy Sane provided assists for all three City goals. 'I want to thank the fans as well because they've been so supportive. However, since the arrival of Pep Guardiola, Yaya Toure has found himself relegated mostly to the bench.

"Understand that a motor vehicle stop is technically an arrest", he said. One officer in particular; however, interjected himself into the situation using language and tactics that were inappropriate, even inflammatory. "We want to assure everyone that our internal affairs investigation will continue and that appropriate actions, based on all of the facts, will be taken by the City".

A video shows an officer cursing and forcefully grabbing Rose Campbell on a Georgia highway on Friday. He said she almost caused an accident. "Unless you're wrong, you're going ask why". "I felt not only that my space had been violated, but that he was not respecting me". She said she wasn't sure if she'd pursue legal action.

"I just panicked", Campbell told WSB TV.

"Am I in a movie?" I couldn't believe it. After being told that she would be arrested for not signing the ticket, she requested that a supervisor respond to the scene. "I didn't expect that in America". "I didn't expect that in Atlanta". Numerous Alpharetta police officers arrived, including me.

But Legg said, given the circumstances, he acted appropriately.
