Officer Who Arrested and Pulled Taser on NFL Player for Speeding Fired

When an NFL lineman was stopped for speeding in South Carolina, he probably expected to beMontgomery given a ticket, but what he got instead was arrested and Tasered. Now the officer responsible for that abυse of power has been fired.

Cincinnati Bengals lineman Sam Montgomery was pulled over by South Carolina State Trooper Lance Cpl. R.S. Salter for doing 89 in a 55 mph zone in June. Instead of just writing Montgomery a ticket, Officer Salter escalated the incident by pulling Montgomery out of his vehicle.

The video shows Montgomery calmly trying to comply with Salter’s commands, Salter grew agitated and went for his Taser.

“The next thing you’re going to get is the Taser,” Salter says on a recording obtained by the Associated Press.

“Whoa,” Montgomery answers, “I’m not trying to cause problems.”

Montgomery was arrested and spent the night behind bars for speeding.

Salter was initially suspended over the incident but was fired on Friday after the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility found that Salter’s behavior was unprofessional and that his interactions with Montgomery were “inconsistent with how he was trained to conduct a traffic stop.”

The Associated Press provides specific instances of Salter’s inappropriate behavior:

The department’s statement said Salter’s comments to Montgomery on the ride to the detention center were inappropriate at times, including when he said, “we can pull that (seat belt) across you tight and lock it, and we make it a very uncomfortable ride to jail.”

The department said that Salter’s assertion to Montgomery that at 25 mph over the speed limit, “you get arrested,” was a misrepresentation of facts because its investigation showed Salter arrested some violators and not others in similar circumstances.

This was not the first time Salter had been disciplined for unprofessional conduct.
