Georgia officer suspended after arrest of 65-year-old turns violent

Squad car video shows Officer James Legg screaming'you're not in charge shut the f*** up before pulling a screaming Rose Campbell out of her vehicle

The Alpharetta, Georgia police chief invoked the "this is not who we are" reaction to the latest display of police escalating a situation, releasing a video on Facebook that shows five police officers - all white men - wrestling a 65-year-old African American. The Metro Atlanta Police Department suspended the officer, and are investigating the case. An officer has also been suspended after the May 4 incident outside of Atlanta was caught on dashcam video, according to CBS affiliate WGCL.

During the traffic stop, Campbell refused to sign her citation because she believed signing the ticket admitted guilt.

A grandmother was pulled over in Georgia and then forcefully removed from her vehicle amid shouts and insults all because of a traffic turn.

"Hey - you're not in charge", he yelled.

"All I felt was his whole body over me and I could feel the weight over me, grabbing at my belt", Campbell told the station. I didn't expect that especially in Alpharetta.

The Alpharetta Police Department posted a video on Facebook Thursday including a statement from Public Safety Chief John Robison and footage from the squad auto showing the incident, which took place May 4 during a traffic stop at Ga.

With the officers unable to remove Campbell from the auto, the recording shows Legg, sporting a baseball cap, running toward the side of the vehicle and entering through the passenger seat to turn off the vehicle.

"As I was watching the video, I had some major concerns about what I was seeing there are aspects of this video that simply do not represent who we are as an organization", he said. The charge of improper lane change was dropped in exchange for her guilty plea. "Shut the f-k up and get out of the auto", Legg said in the video.

"I do not feel I will get a fair internal affairs investigation from you due to the comments you made on Facebook prior to interviewing any of the other officers, or even me", he wrote to Robison. Campbell agreed to exit the vehicle, but was cursed at and had her arm yanked by Legg.


He stated: "I did what was necessary to complete the arrest by raising my voice and using verbal commands using heavy control talk with profanity". Officer James Legg's resignation letter reads. The grandmother was pulled over by another officer after she swerved in front of a police vehicle in an Atlanta-area freeway on May 4. "Move away from me", she says.

She said she hasn't yet decided if she will take legal action.

Instead, she was placed arrest her for disorderly conduct.

In the video, Legg started shouting at the woman just after she agreed to get out of the auto.

That's when Legg leaned in to point and scream at Campbell: "Hey!"

One of the officers can be heard telling Campbell not to slam her body against the cop vehicle and saying 'please, I need you to sit down now'.

"Who are you talking to?"

"We strive to be a transparent department", Robison said. She later told WSB-TV she felt "violated" by the officers. "We share with a video and thank you for your trust that we are taking the proper actions", wrote the Alpharetta Public Safety agency on its Twitter page, sharing the video of the traffic stop.
