A 65-year-old Georgia woman was dragged from her vehicle at a traffic stop

The footage that Robison released shows the May 4 traffic stop of 65-year-old Rose Campbell, who was pulled over for failing to stay in her lane.

During the traffic stop, Campbell refused to sign her citation and didn't want to exit her vehicle, officers said.

In the video, the officer is heard asking Campbell to step out of the vehicle, but she refused to open her door, saying she would not come out until a supervisor arrived.

Alpharetta Police Chief John Robison issued a statement after viewing video of the incident, in which he confirmed Legg's immediate suspension.

Police said the situation began when another officer pulled the woman over because she had drifted out of her lane during a turn. I judged her actions to be passive resistance and used very limited force to end a multiple minute encounter with the suspect.

Quetta mine collapse death toll rises to 23
Two workers were rescued in an unconscious condition, while bodies of two miners were recovered on Saturday night. The mines reportedly have a history of poor enforcement of safety regulations.

Living up to our Standards On Friday evening, one of our officers made a traffic stop for a moving violation that escalated to an arrest of the driver. When the other officers did not immediately restrain and handcuff her I then freed her from her grasp on the seatbelt and she was escorted to the police vehicle. "There are aspects of this video that...simply do not represent who we are as an organization".

At this point Legg grabs the woman again and pulls her towards the cop cars. As such, he arrested her for disorderly conduct as she held on to her seatbelt when she was being forced out of the vehicle. The footage then shows an unprovoked Legg start cursing and yelling at the grandmother before snatching her arm in a jerking motion.

Campbell told WSB that she doesn't want Legg to lose his job, saying, "Disciplinary action should be taken with that gentleman".

After watching the video, Robison said, he "immediately ordered that an internal affairs investigation be opened" - and he pledged that it would bring a "decisive and appropriate outcome".

"I just panicked", Campbell told WSB-TV in an interview. The driver would not sign the ticket and said she wanted to speak to a supervisor.

And neither she, her direct boss, Chief of Staff, General John Kelly nor President Donald Trump have issued any apology. Sadler reportedly known as Meghan McCain on Thursday to apologize for the remark, in keeping with The Hill .

The official did not name Legg in the post, but said the officer "interjected himself into the situation using language and tactics that were inappropriate, even inflammatory". Backup was requested and available officers responded to the scene, some of which responded to handle traffic control along Windward Pkwy. "I didn't expect that in America". Am I in a movie? "I don't like the issue of firing people", she said.

"I didn't expect that especially in Alpharetta", she added.

"I remind you that I did not make the traffic stop, did not begin the use of force, did respond with emergency equipment, did properly analyze the situation, did render the vehicle safe, did get the suspect's attention and out of the auto, did effectively get her detached from the seatbelt, and did get her handcuffed with limited force". I couldn't believe it.

Several local lawmakers also held a news conference on Friday, who said Campbell was a Lyft driver and had a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the arrest.

The incident in question was captured on dashcam video from Alpharetta Police Department. "I felt not only that my space had been violated, but that he was not respecting me". Numerous Alpharetta police officers arrived, including me.
