VIDEO: Ohio Officer's Stop of Family Escalates

A Washington Township (Ohio) Police officer has been placed on administrative leave after he handcuffed and detained a family during a heated vehicle stop.

Officer Eric Hart, who works part time, stopped a female drive for a vehicle with an altered license registration sticker on Sunday afternoon at 166 Pine Ridge St. During the stop, a man later identified as Aaron Tatkowski, stopped and got out of a second vehicle.

Tatkowski advanced toward the officer and said, "I'm f**king sick of you cops," several times. Officer Hart ordered Tatkowski to get back and pointed his stun gun as the man when he refused.

After the officer handcuffed Tatkowski and put him on the ground, the woman from the first vehicle, Cassandra Meyers, advanced toward the officer. Meyers was also handcuffed and put on the ground after a struggle.

During the incident, a group of bystanders filmed the action on a cell phone video that was later posted to YouTube. The incident is now under investigation by the agency, reports the Toledo Blade.
