Dashcam Shows Officer Pinned To Fleeing Vehicle In A Traffic Stop
Three people are in custody after a Thursday morning traffic stop turned violent when one police officer was pushed out into oncoming traffic and another was pinned to a suspect’s vehicle while it sped away.
Sgt. Brian Honea arrived as backup and as he approached Officer Wallace and the suspect, the suspect attempted to re-enter his vehicle
They both attempted to remove the suspect from his vehicle. At one point the suspect was almost pulled completely back out of the vehicle, but the passenger placed the car in drive and launched the suspect vehicle forward knocking Honea to the ground while Wallace was pinned against the driver seat.
Wallace and the suspects wrestled with each other inside the vehicle at speeds up to 71 mph.
About halfway into what would become a more than one-mile chase, Wallace said he decided to pull the driver door closed to prevent being thrown out onto the roadway in traffic.
All of the suspects are from Massachusetts and have been identified as gang members. Two handguns, which were thrown from the vehicle have been recovered.
