Ohio Cop Shatters Windshield Of Police Cruiser With Handcuffed Man’s Face
An Ohio officer slammed a handcuffed man’s face into a police cruiser with so much force that it broke the windshield, causing the glass to shatter, newly released footage shows. Despite the violent impact, the local police chief is defending the officer.
Dash cam video obtained exclusively by NBC affiliate WKYC shows Pele Smith being escorted to the squad car while handcuffed in Lorain, Ohio.
Instead of opening the car door for Smith and placing him in the backseat, the officer escorting him throws him against the windshield so hard that the glass shatters.
