Police drag 65-year-old woman from car at traffic stop: Video
"I just panicked. I felt like my heart exploded": Shocking dashcam footage shows police dragging a 65-year-old woman out of her car at a traffic stop in Alpharetta, Georgia
Video shows Campbell getting pulled over and ticketed for drifting into another lane, according to WSB. After Campbell refused to sign the ticket, which is against the law in Georgia, the officer informed her that she was under arrest. The situation escalated when backup arrived on scene.
One of the backup officers can be heard screaming, "You're not in charge, shut up and get the f--- out of the car!" before aggressively yanking the elderly woman's arm and pulling her hands behind her back. At this point there are at least five officers on the scene and Campbell is crying for help, asking to see a supervisor.
WSB has identified the aggressive officer as "Officer Legg," and he's been suspended. Campbell told WSB she doesnt think he should be fired, but that she wants better training for officers.
She said she hasn't yet decided if she will take legal action.
