State troopers on Monday were forced to intentionally flatten the tires of an out of control car on I-95.
Joseph Cooper of Palm Coast made a call at 12:46 p.m. Monday. He had just entered Martin County as he drove north on I-95.
“I believe my gas pedal is stuck to my car,” Cooper calmly told the 911 operator.
Cooper told the operator he didn’t know why the gas pedal was stuck. He also didn’t know what to do about it as his black BMW reached dangerous speeds.
“I’m doing like 95, about 100,” he told the operator. Miraculously, no one was injured, and police were able to eventually use a Pit Maneuver to bring the BMW under control.
A Tennessee sheriff ordered his deputies to shoot an unarmed man during a slow-speed car chase so they wouldn’t damage their patrol cars by ramming them off the road, according to a new lawsuit.
Sheriff Oddie Shoupe of White County is currently being sued for excessive force in the death of Michael Dial, who was shot by police while driving on a suspended license on Highway 70.
After Dial was shot, Sheriff Shoupe arrived at the scene, where he was captured on a deputy’s body camera saying, “I love this s–t…I thrive on it,” according to the lawsuit filed by Dial’s widow Robyn Spainhoward.
Dial, who was driving a pickup truck with a fully loaded trailer at maximum speeds of 50 miles per hour, led police on a chase when he refused to pull over on April 13, 2017.
