State Trooper Threatened to Taser ‘Polite and Complying’ Bengals Lineman

Bengals lineman Sam Montgomery was stopped in South Carolina after Officer Salter says he caught him driving 89 mph in a 55 mph zone. Montgomery did everything he could to politely comply with Salter and gave him no reason to threaten him with the taser, or be arrested.

The 6-foot-3, 262-pound lineman attempts to comply when Salter tells him if he can’t follow the commands ‘the next thing you’re going to get is the Taser.’

Rather than write him a ticket, Salter arrested the NFL player and had him spend the night in jail.

The Department of public safety said Salter’s actions were ‘not representative of professionalism’ the agency expects and was suspended pending an investigation. Salter has been with the South Carolina Highway Patrol since 2000.
