Memo2File: Let’s Take the Perp for a Drag Instead

Dash Cam of Officer dragged and struck on a Vehicle onto the Freeway. Georgia 

Dramatic dash camera video shows the moment when a Georgia police officer jumped into the driver’s side window of a fleeing vehicle following a routine traffic stop on Thursday.

Dunwoody Polie Officer Nathan Daley had pulled over a 2019 Chevrolet Malibu after the driver, identified as 35-year-old Derric Simpson, allegedly violated the state’s hands-free law. According to authorities, Simpson put the vehicle in gear, attempting to flee and Daley quickly jumped into the driver’s side window.

The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is seen in the video swerving and eventually smashing into vehicles to shake the officer as he traveled along the entrance ramp to the I-285 freeway. As he was left hanging out of the vehicle, Daley reportedly told Simpson to stop the car multiple times, but he wouldn’t stop, according to the Dunwoody Police Department.

    Let’s see…I’ve never been a police officer, but shayeet, that was some awful police officering. Not sure why the officer wanted to hero-up for a cell-phone use violation, but he sure as hell did it!

    Then, his buddy, a certified blue falcon, left officer roadkill in the interstate, and pursued the perp until his donut-full ass needed to pursue on foot and apparently that was too much trouble.

    Bad situation all the way around Casey and I agree with you, the other officer should have attended his companion. There would be plenty of time to kill that driver a little later; slowly and with great attention to detail.

    My wife and I together drive less than 2000 miles per year, know why?
    Retards with cellphones and retards with guns.
    I require very little of either.
