STURGIS, Mich. (AP) -- A southwestern Michigan prosecutor has called for the firing of a state trooper who pulled a gun on an 18-year-old woman whom he had stopped for speeding.
The Kalamazoo Gazette obtained a video showing the trooper leaving his cruiser with gun drawn, then handcuffing the woman and putting her in the backseat of his cruiser.
State police asked St. Joseph County Prosecutor John McDonough to investigate the April 15 traffic stop on U.S. 12 near Sturgis. The Associated Press is not naming the trooper because he hasn't been charged with a crime.
In a statement, the prosecutor said he was "appalled and disgusted" by the trooper's actions. McDonough said he did not want the trooper "to have the opportunity to do anything like this again and certainly not in St. Joseph County."
