Police officer fired for hitting fleeing suspect with car hired days later by neighboring county

first_imgAthens-Clarke County Police Department(ATHENS, Ga.) — The Georgia police officer who was fired for hitting a fleeing suspect with his cop car on Saturday was out of work for just two days.Taylor Saulters, who was fired by Athens-Clarke County Police Department on Saturday for running down a suspect with his car, was hired by the neighboring Oglethorpe County Sheriff’s Office on Monday.Oglethorpe County Sheriff David Gabriel announced the news on Facebook, saying, “I have known him since he was a baby and I know he will be a great asset to our county.”Gabriel defended the hiring in the same post. He referred to the incident as “a fleeing felon struck his patrol car” and said he has “no reservations.”“If his name sounds familiar it is probably due to the fact that he was recently terminated by ACCPD for an incident where a fleeing felon struck his patrol car while he was attempting to apprehend him,” Gabriel said in the statement. “In talking to Saulters the first question he asked was if our citizens supported law enforcement. Without hesitation I assured him they did and that we have excellent people that live in our county. I have no reservations about Dep. Saulters serving this community.”On Friday, Saulters and his Athens-Clarke County police partner had stopped Timmy Patmon, who had an open warrant for a probation violation, when the suspect fled on foot, according to authorities. Saulters’ partner, Hunter Blackmon, chased Patmon on foot while Saulters got into his police cruiser and chased after the suspect.Video released by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department showed Saulters swerved left in front of Patmon, but he isn’t able to stop him from running. Saulters then accelerated again and turns right, hitting Patmon with the right front quarter panel of his car. Patmon rolled up on the hood of the car and then fell to the pavement.Patmon was then taken into custody by the two officers as bystanders assembled and shouted at the two members of law enforcement for hitting Patmon.Athens Police Chief Scott Freeman placed Saulters on administrative leave before firing him Saturday after reviewing the body camera footage.Patmon, who was born in 1994, was wanted for a felony probation violation as a result of a previous arrest for possession of marijuana and methamphetamine. He was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and is currently being held on $1,500 bond at Athens-Clarke County Jail on a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of a law enforcement officer, according to court records.Gabriel offered to speak to anyone who had concerns about Saulters being hired in Oglethorpe County.“As a citizen of Oglethorpe County you will find the wisdom of this decision in getting a deputy of this caliber,” Gabriel said. “If you still have concerns I will discuss them with you if you contact me. If you are not an Oglethorpe County resident, I wouldn’t worry about it.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

NTSB releases preliminary report on California dive-boat fire that killed 34 people

first_imgTwitter/@VCFD_PIO(SANTA BARBARA, Calif.) — In a preliminary report on the Southern California blaze that erupted on an anchored dive boat and killed 34 people, federal investigators revealed that surviving crew members told them there were no known mechanical or electrical issues with the vessel and smoke detectors sounded in the below-deck bunkroom where the victims were sleeping.The National Transportation Safety Board released the preliminary report on Thursday, a day after divers recovered the body of the final missing victim of a boat fire off the coast of Santa Barbara.Salvage teams were working Thursday to raise the doomed ship from 65 feet of water so investigators could closely inspect the vessel as part of their probe to determine what sparked the Labor Day fire and if any criminal charges are warranted.NTSB officials said the investigation could take 12 to 24 months, but they are “100% certain” they will determine the cause of the fire.The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office announced on Twitter Wednesday that it “is relieved to report that search and recovery efforts today were successful in locating the last missing victim.”DNA testing is still being conducted to confirm the identities of seven of the 34 victims recovered, the sheriff’s office said.The bodies were pulled from the submerged wreckage of a chartered dive boat that caught fire before dawn on Sept. 2 near the Channel Islands, about a mile off the coast of Santa Barbara.There were 39 people aboard the 75-foot vessel, named the Conception, when it burst into flames. Five crew members, including the captain, who were all on the top deck jumped overboard and survived. The 34 others were apparently sleeping below deck and became trapped when flames blocked both a stairway and an escape hatch, according to the sheriff’s office.The burning boat sank in 65 feet of water and overturned as firefighters battled the flames. A day later, the U.S. Coast Guard called off the search for possible survivors, shifting its efforts to search and recovery.DNA collected from family members is being used to identify the victims, who are believed to range in age from in their teens to their 60s, according to the sheriff’s office.The NTSB sent a 16-member investigative team to the scene last week. They are collecting evidence and expected to interview the crew, witnesses and first responders, according to NTSB member Jennifer Homendy.During an interview with ABC News last week, Homendy said the crew members tried to get to the passengers sleeping below deck but were pushed back by fierce flames. They then went to the front of the ship and tried to break through its windows. When that didn’t work, they ultimately had to look out for their own safety.“At some point because of heat, smoke and fire they had to jump off the boat,” she said.The boat was required to have smoke detectors, fixed firefighting equipment in the engine room and fire extinguishers throughout, including ones at the front and rear of the vessel, according to Capt. Monica Rochester of the U.S. Coast Guard, who told reporters last week that all the required firefighting apparatus was accounted for during the most recent inspection.It remains under investigation whether the crew attempted to use the firefighting equipment before abandoning ship, Rochester said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgKali9/iStockBy MARK OSBORNE, EMILY SHAPIRO, ALEX STONE and WILL CARR, ABC NEWS(PASO ROBLES, Calif.) — The Paso Robles, California, Police Department said they shot and killed the gunman who has been on the run since early Wednesday after he allegedly targeted a precinct and injured a deputy. He is also believed to be responsible for the murder of a transient man in the area.Three officers were wounded by the gunman in two separate incidents, police said. Their injuries are all considered non-life threatening.While searching for the suspect, identified by police as 26-year-old Mason James Lira, an Arroyo Grande police officer, also a member of the San Luis Obispo Regional SWAT Team, was shot by the apparent suspect, according to the city of Arroyo Grande.Officers reported to the shooting and came under fire from the suspect, who had been hiding in a riverbed. Two more officers were shot in pursuit of Lira, before he was shot himself.He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.The suspect was found with multiple guns.Police believe the guns were stolen during a burglary in San Luis Obispo prior to Wednesday’s shooting.Local law enforcement, the California Highway Patrol and the FBI had been searching for the suspect since they believe he opened fire on law enforcement at about 3 a.m. Wednesday.Nicholas Dreyfus, a 28-year old deputy with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office, responded to the early morning shooting and was shot in the face, officials said. His prognosis is good, the sheriff’s office said.Authorities believe Lira was a transient from the Monterey, California, area.Authorities also believe Lira is connected to a Wednesday morning homicide near the Paso Robles Amtrak Station.The sheriff’s office said the body of a man who was shot in the head at close range was found near the station Wednesday morning.The victim killed was likely a transient who was camping out near the train tracks, authorities said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
