    We have been wondering if there has been some history between the EMS agency and the OHP in that neck of the woods.

    Now I am wondering if this was just an unlucky meeting of two of the biggest Type A "Para-God vs. I-Am-The-Law" personalities in the entire sooner state....

    Where did you get your info, anti-cop one?

    The Trooper screwed up when he let him go. You cannot "un-arrest" someone. Only the courts can do that. If I put my hands on you, you are going in cuffs. The Trooper opened the door to a myriad of problems when he let the EMT go.

    I might be young, but I don't have to act like a child to prove a point. What's your excuse?

    I'm posting to a hypocrite about him being a hypocrite. Funny, I figured you'd at least make a point before resorting to child like tactics.

    If you'd like to rebuke it I'd be willing to hear it.

    As I said, go away. I'm too busy dealing with the adults here to spend any of my valuable time on you.

    Talking

    Don't believe you're above being called out on acting like a child. It's embarrassing to think you are a firefighter. I pray I never have to serve under a grown man-child such as yourself.

    Me too. I am a horrible person. I have no credibility and I am a jerk.

    Now will you go away?

    see he admitted it. now we can all rest in peace.

    tajm611, don't waste your breath. George will never admit that a cop was wrong, except when it was painfully obvious to even the most simple minds that he was wrong (which explains why he can).

    don't worry about it, just move on

    All internet bullies are real life cowards.

    Sad that he can't even defend why he contradicts himself.

    Tell you what ACM, go through this thread from page one and count how many times I stated that the cops were wrong. Just this thread.

    Then come back and admit you were wrong.

    The truth hurts? Don't be a coward. Man up to the fact you act like a child and throw temper tantrums when some one disagrees you.

    Default Update

    A lawsuit has been filed against the OHP Trooper involved in a scuffle with a paramedic.

    The paramedic's attorney, Richard O’Carroll, filed the lawsuit against Trooper Daniel Martin, for allegedly violating Maurice White's 4th Amendment rights.

    Cell phone and OHP dash cam video show Trooper Martin confronting White after Martin says the ambulance failed to yield back on May 24th in Okfuskee County.

    Trooper Martin is still on administrative leave tonight, and his case is in the hands of the Chief of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

    Stay tuned for the latest tonight on FOX23 News at 9, and updates on FOX23.com.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An investigation into a scuffle in which a state trooper choked a paramedic is under review and the attorney for the paramedic says he's tired of the lack of action.

    OHP trooper Daniel Martin has been on paid leave since June 1 after a video of the May 24 incident with Creek Nation paramedic Maurice White Jr. surfaced.

    White's attorney, Richard O'Carroll says the OHP and Department of Public Safety are hoping to stall until people stop asking questions.

    OHP Capt. Chris West says the investigation has finished and is being reviewed by OHP Col. Van Guillotte and State Public Safety Department Commissioner Kevin Ward. West says the results of the investigation likely will be announced soon.

    Are you sure that they said 4th amendment? That is a protection against unlawful searches and seizures. As far as I could see, nothing was searched and nothing was seized.

    This case will never see a courtroom. For all of the reasons stated here, the medic was as much in the wrong as the cop was.

    Now, if the lady in the back of the bus wanted to sue...

    Yep they said 4th. That was a direct copy and paste from the website.

    Actually, the paramedic was "siezed" because he was arrested.

    This would probably be leading to the unlawful arrest argument.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    I am not an attorney (my one redeeming quality), but I am pretty sure that the "seizure" that is referred to in the 4th amendment is the seizure of property. An argument for unlawful arrest could probably be made, but that is a different issue. There would be no unlawful arrest argument if the trooper hadn't let the guy go. But I have pointed that out about a hundred times.
