You Won’t Believe How this Officer Acted
What should’ve been a routine traffic stop in Washington Township, Ohio, has the entire town outraged at the police officer’s behavior.
Cassandra Meyers said she was pulled over for a license plate violation on Sept. 15, but when Officer Hart began acting erratically, she asked him about his behavior.
At the same time, Meyers’ father-in-law, Aaron Tatkowski, was driving by and pulled over when he noticed it was Meyers with the officer.
“He hollered for me to get back in my truck, so I got back in my truck,” Tatkowski said. “Next thing you know, I’m yanked out of the truck and it made my girlfriend say a few things. He yanked her out of the truck,” he added.
Tatkowski explained that the officer threw him, his girlfriend, his daughter-in-law and his 14-year-old son to the ground.
Lucky for Tatkowski, as the officer brandished his weapon and Taser, witnesses began filming the incident. “It was totally uncalled for, the way [the officer] was using force on people,” said witness, Jim Stechschulte. “I’m sorry to say that, but that’s the way it is and if they don’t like it, so be it.”
In the police report, Officer Hart claimed the group refused to listen to his commands and that he was forced to take excessive steps.
