Cop in Toledo, Ohio Caught on Camera Threatening Family With His Gun

Spokesperson for police department says the officer's actions were appropriate


Residents of Washington Township in Toledo, Ohio are furious at the cop who pulled a woman over for a routine license plate violation, forced her and her family to lay in the street, threatened them with his gun and roughed up her father-in-law.

The incident occurred on Sunday, when Cassandra Meyers was stopped near her home by a police officer identified only as Officer Hart. Her father-in-law, Aaron Tatkowski, witnessed Hart questioning Meyers, and approached. Tatkowski didn't like the way Hart was talking to his daughter-in-law, according to Toledo News Now.
