VIDEO: Ohio Vehicle Pursuit Ends in Fatal Accident

The Lima (Ohio) Police Department released dashcam video Wednesday from a pursuit early last Friday morning that led to the death of a 21-year-old Lima man.

Lima Police Department Major Chip Protsman released the video today at the request of The Lima News. Police officials were hesitant to release the footage earlier in the week, saying that it fell under an exception to the state’s open records law concerning active investigations. However, the department decided otherwise after consulting prosecutors.

“It’s still an ongoing investigation,” Protsman said. “However, after discussing it with the county prosecutor and our law director, they felt that this would not influence the case either way. That’s why we decided to release it.”.

Earlier this week, Protsman said the Police Department’s review of the 13-second incident showed no wrongdoing by Montgomery.

Interesting lack of probable cause under Ohio Law. He thought he smelled something isn't going to play well in court.

Play the video. The Officer says "I think I smell something" and gave their code for illegal drugs to his dispatcher.

You've NEVER been behind or near a vehicle that reeks of marijuana?

I have been around a lot of suspected Marihuana use but he even says he thinks he smells something. If I knew I was on camera and audio I would say I do smell something leaning more toward knowing than guessing.
