Illinois police release dashcam footage after three suspects indicted for strangling officer during traffic stop
An Illinois Police Department released dashcam footage this week allegedly showing three suspects charged with attempted murder, beating and strangling an officer during a traffic stop last month.
The video shows an officer from the Aurora Police Department running over a vehicle around 10 p.m. on June 21st when Paul Sherrod Taylor, 28, jumps out of the car and supposedly says, "I'm going to knock you out, brother." The officer repeatedly tries to tell the man to "get back in the vehicle" but when he tries to arrest him he walks away and two women are seen getting out of the car.
He eventually runs off and the officer chases him before the alleged off-camera attack takes place.
THREE RAISED FOR APPROPRIATE BEAT AND SPICE OFFICIER ILLINOIS OFFICER DURING TRAFFIC
Law enforcement said the two women "started beating the officer with closed fists and kicking his body and head." One of the two women reportedly "put her forearm around the officer’s neck and exerted significant force on his windpipe, causing him to lose his ability to breathe."
When reinforcements arrived, the two women were seen on top of the officer when a separate officer began to rescue his colleague.
On Friday, Sheba Taylor, 26, Jennifer Taylor, 24 and Paul Sherrod Taylor were each charged by a grand jury with attempted first degree murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault and resistance to a peace officer. Paul Sherrod Taylor was also charged with threatening an officer.
The incident caught the attention of the city's mayor Richard Irvin, who railed against the "act of malice and cowardice".
"This type of lawlessness and violence against our police officers cannot and will not be tolerated," he said in a statement. “This was an act of malice and cowardice and I will make every effort to ensure that the perpetrators are fully prosecuted. Let us keep this officer in our prayers while the officer makes a full and complete recovery. "
Similarly, Chief Kristen Ziman said, “Our Aurora officers are tasked with keeping our community safe from harm. Words fail me when an officer is attacked by what would have been a simple parking ticket. We will not allow our city to become a place where criminals feel encouraged and where lawlessness follows.
