VIDEO: 911 Call at Vehicle Stop

In the latest Seattle Police video, a man calls 911 to tell dispatchers he's the victim of an "illegal stop by an officer."

A Seattle Police officer pulled over Amanuel Gebreselassie for speeding shortly after midnight on Aug. 17, 2010 in Seattle's Chinatown-International district. Gebreselassie, who the officer said was "extremely verbally abusive," called 911 and told a dispatcher he wanted to make sure he was "a real officer."

The call was cut short after other responding officers pulled Gebreselassie out of the car, when he began to resist.

The attorney representing Gebreselassie is calling for Chief John Diaz to resign, reports KOMO.
