Police video showing trooper dragging woman out of car, yelling at her, pulling her clothes, sots, more of the police video.
A South Carolina state trooper was fired after his own car's video camera abusing a woman he stopped for doing 80 mph in a 65-mph zone. The tape showed Lance Cpl. W.H. Beckwith, an 11-year highway patrol veteran, shoving the woman down on the road, cursing her and threatening to cut her clothes off. On thursday state officials released the tape, which, according to public safety director Boykin Rose showed that the officer was ``violating every procedure in the book.'' Beckwith was fired a month and a half after the Jan. 8 incident. His car was one of about 350 patrol cars equipped with video cameras that turn on with the cars' lights and sirens.
