Prosecutors in Ohio are considering pressing assault charges against an Addyston police officer after he slammed a woman on the ground for not coming to a complete stop at an intersection.
Dashcam video obtained by WCPO shows Tiffany Becker slowing down — but not stopping — at the intersection of Dining and Main streets. Officer Jeremie Keene briefly followed the vehicle before pulling her over.
