Investigation Launched After Video Shows Paraplegic Man Being Yanked From Car, Thrown To Ground By Ohio Police


The Dayton Police Department has opened an investigation after body cam video shows officers pulling a paraplegic man from his car during a traffic stop last month.

Clifford Owensby was pulled over on Sept. 30 after leaving what police said is a suspected drug house. Due to Owensby’s previous felony drug and weapons violations, officers were attempting to run a K-9 “free-air” sniff of the car to see if there were illegal drugs inside.

After removing him from the car, police say they found $22,450 in cash inside a bag.

Owensby claimed the cash found was his ‘savings’ — no drugs were found in the car. He was charged with obstructing official business and resisting arrest.

Owensby’s attorney James Willis says they will file a civil lawsuit.
