That’s some Dirty Harry sh*t right there.
A rookie Georgia police officer has been fired after being caught on video running over a fleeing suspect with his patrol car.
The Athens-Clarke County Police Department released footage showing Officer Taylor Saulters mowing down Timmy Patmon, 23, who was wanted on a felony probation warrant, in Athens on Friday. Saulters was canned Saturday.
After hitting Patmon and knocking him to the ground, Saulters and his partner, Officer Hunter Blackmon handcuffed him as outraged residents surrounded the cops.
Patmon was taken to a local hospital for scrapes and bruises before being booked into Clarke County Jail. He’s charged with violating his probation and obstructing a law enforcement officer.
Saulters was initially suspended, but the police chief fired him after investigating and reviewing the footage. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Georgia State Patrol have launched separate investigations into the incident.
