Golf Cart Traffic Stop Arrest Gets Crazy – Police Body Cam Footage – Put-in-Bay police pulled over an overloaded golf cart Saturday night and a melee ensued resulting in nine arrests, eight of who are black.
The cops said they perceived a threat from the group and a woman passenger trying to hide a substance. Police escalated the situation.
Ottawa County Prosecutor James VanEerton dropped all charges against the nine visitors.
The mayor placed Put-in-Bay police Chief Steve Riddle on paid administrative leave and two officers involved have resigned–Lt. Michael Russo, who made the stop, and Sgt. Melissa Wilde, one of the officers who arrived as backup.
Those golf carts should have much better lights on roads like that.
