GEORGIA COP FIRED FOR HITTING FLEEING SUSPECT WITH CAR

A Georgia police officer was fired after he drove his patrol car into a fleeing suspect who was wanted for violating probation.

Taylor Saulters, a rookie with the Athens-Clarke County Police Department in Georgia, “used poor judgment in using his patrol vehicle as a means to apprehend a fleeing suspect,” a preliminary Internal Affairs investigation report obtained by Oxygen.com concluded.

“There are no facts that were uncovered that would have led to the justification for this level of use of force in this incident,” the report found. Saulters was fired on Saturday.
