Distressing video captured the moment a police dog in Ohio mauled a black truck driver who was on his knees and with his hands up after a local cop went against a state troopers orders not to release the K-9.
Jadarrius Rose, 23, of Memphis, Tennessee, failed to stop his semi-trailer for a Motor Carrier Enforcement inspector while driving with a missing mud flap on US 35 in Jackson County on July 4, WSYX reported.
He led troopers on a 25-minute chase through Chillicothe, driving erratically and narrowly avoiding spike sticks before a second set blew out his tires on Route 23 in Circleville, about 30 miles south of Columbus.
Footage released Friday by the Ohio State Highway Police shows a state trooper yelling at Rose to approach him as a Circleville police German shepherd is held back by its handler.
Meanwhile, a Circleville cop appears to give a conflicting order.Rose was treated at Adena Regional Medical Center, where he told troopers he did nothing wrong and did not understand why he was being stopped, according to a case report cited by CNN.
After being released from the hospital, Rose was charged with failure to comply, a fourth-degree felony, according to the Highway Patrol. He has been released from the Ross County Jail. A trooper shouts: Get the dog off him!
As troopers were attempting to gain compliance by providing verbal commands to the suspect, the Circleville Police Department deployed their canine, which resulted in the suspect being bitten by the canine, Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. Ryan Purpura told Cleveland19 in a statement. Purpura said the case remains under investigation.
The Circleville Police Department told WSYX that the citys Use of Force Review Board also is investigating the incident but did not say whether Speakman was placed on paid leave.
