Paraplegic dragged from car by dreadlocks despite telling police he’s disabled
The Metro says this is the moment a disabled black man is dragged out of his car by his hair after repeatedly telling police he couldn’t use his legs.
Clifford Owensby, 39, has accused the Dayton, Ohio Police Department of racially profiling him and of brutality after he was pinned down to the ground.
Video footage shows him explaining how he ‘can’t step out of the car’. The officer says he can help him get out and adds: ‘I’m telling you, it’s not an option.’
