A police dash cam video shows an officer shouting at a 65-year-old woman during a traffic stop. Several officers then arrived, including Legg, who used profanity and force to remove Campbell from her vehicle. "Shut the f-k up and get out of the vehicle", Legg said in the video.

The Alpharetta Police Department posted a video on Facebook Thursday including a statement from Public Safety Chief John Robison and footage from the squad auto showing the incident, which took place May 4 during a traffic stop at Ga. He added that there were aspects of the video that "simply do not represent who we are as an organization".

He stated: "I did what was necessary to complete the arrest by raising my voice and using verbal commands using heavy control talk with profanity".

Legg, one of the officers who arrived after a call for backup, was suspended by the police department and an investigation was opened.

Authorities said a 65-year-old woman was pulled over May 4 after her auto swerved and almost hit another vehicle. It was unclear Friday whether Campbell was formally charged with a crime.

During the traffic stop, Campbell refused to sign her citation and didn't want to exit her vehicle, officers said. When she would not comply, the officer opened the door and instructed her to step out of the vehicle.

Soon afterward, Swerdlove ordered Campbell to step outside her SUV.

The exchange then becomes heated as Campbell closes her door on Swerdlove, which he reacts to by shouting at her to leave the vehicle and trying to pull her out. As such, he arrested her for disorderly conduct as she held on to her seatbelt when she was being forced out of the auto.

Things escalated when an officer aggressively began screaming and cursing at Campbell.

The second officer says, 'Ok, alright, as he gently helps her out of the vehicle'.

"I'll come out for you", she said.

"I will justify my actions when given the opportunity to do so through a [Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council] POST investigation", Legg wrote.

The befuddled woman says, "Who are you talking to?"

Campbell can be heard screaming at the top of her lungs in fear. However, in an apparent reference to the third officer in the video, the spokesperson said one of the officers "interjected himself into the situation using language and tactics that were inappropriate, even inflammatory". When the other officers did not immediately restrain and handcuff her I then freed her from her grasp on the seatbelt and she was escorted to the police vehicle. As you'll see, this was a complicated issue due to the age of the driver as the officer did not want to hurt her. The officer was unable to subdue the driver and requested for backup officers to come to his location.

I do not feel I will get a fair internal affairs investigation from you due to the comments you made on Facebook prior to interviewing any of the other officers, or even me. Our process allows us to thoroughly review the matter and determine what actions are appropriate moving forward.

She asks him whether he's the supervisor, and he suddenly lunges past the two officers already holding Campbell, grabs her arm and forces it behind her back as another officer cuffs her.

"Everybody does that when a cop gives you a ticket", she said. "I'm going to be honest with you I felt violated".
