GRAPHIC: Police officer suspended for rough treatment of 65-year-old woman

Squad car video shows Officer James Legg screaming'you're not in charge shut the f*** up before pulling a screaming Rose Campbell out of her vehicle

Legg was shouting at Rose Campbell, a 65-year-old grandmother who didn't want to sign a traffic ticket for allegedly failing to maintain her lane May 4.

Video of an elderly Georgia woman getting hauled out of her auto after refusing to sign a traffic ticket is sparking outrage. During the traffic stop, the situation escalated to multiple officers pulling on Campbell and one officer screaming expletives at her, reported WSB-TV.

Public Safety Chief John Robison released a YouTube video that included the dash cam footage in an effort to be transparent with the community, and said that Legg's actions in the video "simply do not represent who we are as an organization".

As Swerdlove and another officer grappled with Campbell, she said that if Swerdlove took his hands off of her, she would get out.

"I come from a world that, when I was a teenager, we feared getting pulled over and getting a ticket because Mom and Dad would have to pay for it", Campbell said in a Friday news conference with her attorney and several state lawmakers.

He then reached into the auto to pull her out of the vehicle and told her she was under arrest for disorderly conduct.

"Maybe I should not have used profanity", Legg added, "but its immediate effectiveness is not questionable and I do believe I acted reasonably under the circumstances". In his letter, Legg said he stepped in because other officers were unable to complete the arrest and his language got the woman out of the auto.

That's when Legg leaned in to point and scream at Campbell: "Hey!" Campbell agreed to exit the vehicle, but was cursed at and had her arm yanked by Legg.

Williams thanked wife Joanne for convincing him to keep playing when he contemplated quitting a year ago . The Scot made breaks of 131, 67, 82, 52 and 62, often after the Welshman had got in first.

That officer reached into the vehicle to open the door and repeatedly told her to step out of the auto.

'I just panicked, I felt like my heart exploded. Although she denied the traffic violation, the officer issued her a ticket. They continued to argue, with Swerdlove ordering her out, and Campbell saying she would wait for the supervisor. One officer in particular; however, interjected himself into the situation using language and tactics that were inappropriate, even inflammatory. Backup was requested and available officers responded to the scene, some of which responded to handle traffic control along Windward Pkwy.

"I remind you that I did not make the traffic stop, did not begin the use of force, did respond with emergency equipment, did properly analyze the situation, did render the vehicle safe, did get the suspect's attention and out of the auto, did effectively get her detached from the seatbelt, and did get her handcuffed with limited force". It was surreal. I didn't expect that in America.

Robison said he immediately ordered an internal affairs investigation and promised decisive action at the conclusion of the investigation. "I didn't expect that in Atlanta".

Campbell gave an interview to a local television station in which she said she felt violated.

'I won't until your supervisor comes, ' Campbell says. Am I in a movie?

After the backlash the Officer, identified by WSB as James Legg was suspended pending an internal investigation. "I think everyone has a space for redemption". Numerous Alpharetta police officers arrived, including me. I couldn't believe it.
