Tape captures officer intimidating driver
“Their heart is in the right place,” CHP Officer Art Montiel said of drivers who snap photos of lawbreakers.“I feel the same way when traveling in my personal vehicle.But, CHP Officer Steve Creel said, snapping a photo to identify a violator could lead to a confrontation with that person.“Many highway violence incidents have been triggered by much less provocation than an attempted taking of a photo,” he said. Her pet peeve is the number of solo drivers who use carpool lanes at onramps to beat traffic.
That is what happened May 20 and resulted in the beating of a motorist on Highway 101 who caused a crash after losing control while videotaping motorcyclists near Ralston Avenue in Belmont.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota is calling for an investigation into a police officer’s conduct shown in squad-car video footage of a 2016 arrest after a stop in southwest Minnesota.
The ACLU is alleging excessive force by the officer — a 32-year-old graduate of Harding High School in St.
A criminal complaint against the driver alleges he aggressively swerved toward the officer after threatening other officers earlier that morning.
The officer accused of excessive force is white; the driver, charged with assault, fleeing and driving without a license, is a Laotian-American man who was 21 at the time.
