Video: Cop goes ballistic on wheelchair-bound man


The entire command staff of the police department in Lafayette, Indiana recommended Lt. Tom Davidson be fired for shoving a man in a wheelchair onto the street last year, but the department’s Civil Service Commission decided instead to issue a 30-day suspension and place the officer on supervisory probation for a year.

Police Chief Patrick Flannelly made that revelation Tuesday as he released a dashcam video of the Oct. 1 wheelchair incident, nine months after it happened.

In the video, Lt. Tom Davidson, who has been on the force since 1995, is engaged in a conversation with Nicholas Kincade, 25, who uses a motorized wheelchair.

  1. It looked to me that the cop intentionally positioned himself so that he would be hit
    by the wheel chair. Anyone with an ounce of sense would step back to allow a handicapped person in a motorized wheel chair a clear path after they told the person to leave but this cop stands there as if his feet were attached to the pavement. Reminded me of a batter trying to pretend he didn't try to get hit by the baseball so he could take first base.
