Let’s be honest – GOD BLESS OUR POLICE! A New York state trooper attemping to make a traffic stop was dragged and injured by a black driver on Long Island Wednesday afternoon.
ABC 7 reported that the trooper pulled over a vehicle driven by Kyreem Kelly, 29, after seeing him texting while driving, officials said.
The trooper told Kelly his car would have to be towed, and it was at this point Kelly sped away with the trooper still hanging out of the driver’s side window.
Thankfully two passing motorists arrived and thanks to their dash cam were able to show the trooper attempting to subdue and arrest the man. They pulled over after seeing Kelly’s vehicle take off and then crash into the center median with the trooper still in the vehicle.
The video shows the trooper, with a bloodied face, struggling to subdue Kelly.
Luckily, two Good Samaritans and patriots jump in to help restrain him until police and other troopers arrived on the scene.
The trooper is being treated at a local hospital for head injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening.
Kelly was taken into custody and faces multiple felony and misdemeanor charges: aggravated assault upon a police officer, second-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration and second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation.
