VIDEO: Man Gets 30 Years for Dragging Mo. Trooper

Missouri State Highway Patrol Cpl. Cody Dunfee pulled over Alan Hampton near I-435 and 152 Highway on July 8, 2012. Dunfee clocked him going 86 miles per hour in a 65mph zone.

Approaching Hampton’s car, Cpl. Dunfee felt something was up. Hampton had something in his waistband. Dunfee pulled his gun and Hampton hit the gas. Dunfee acted without hesitation.

 “Dove into the car right after him, I drew my service weapon as i did that and he took off speeding down the shoulder,” Cpl. Dunfee told Fox4KC. The trooper shot Hampton twice in the leg, forcing him to pull over.

Wednesday morning, Hampton was sentenced to 30 years : Six years for resisting arrest, 12 for possession and 12 for felon in possession of a firearm. The judge ordered them served consecutively.

Great job officer and a great ending.

Nice! Hopefully,,,He will do the 30 years. Had this been in CA. or Los Angeles County, The officer would have gotten himself 30 days off or fired for putting himself in the situation. It is great to see a state, county, city and department that wants to put the bad man in jail. Unlike this county and California.

Best regards to you,

Glad that Cpl. Dunfee didn't experience harm! My idea of what the judges across the country should hand down the decision that was delivered in this case...even more would make me happier!!!
