Sistergirl wore that head out
A passerby possibly saved the life of Dayton police officer this past weekend after she intervened while he was in an altercation at a traffic stop, according to WDTN-TV.
Officer Jonathan Seiter's cruiser's dashboard camera captured the incident that occurred around 10:45 p.m. on Dec. 11.
Seiter stopped a car because of a missing headlight and had him step out of the car after he was uncooperative.
The man -- 64-year-old Otto Coleman -- shoved the officer and the two engaged in a fight. The video shows the man reaching for the officer's gun and taser during the nearly five-minute long struggle.
While back up was en route to the scene, an unidentified woman started hitting the suspect, allowing the officer to regain control and bring him to the ground.
"This young lady did come to his aid," Sgt. Larry Tolpin told the news station. "I think it was very commendable, though, don't get me wrong, I'm not endorsing the citizens participating, but under this particular circumstance it was very commendable of her."
Coleman was charged with attempted aggravated robbery, resisting arrest, and assault on a police officer. According to police, he has a wrap sheet that includes felonious assault with intent to murder, felonious assault with intent to maim and three counts of felonious assault; two against police.
