A traffic stop in Ohio escalated to a showdown in front of a crowd of people and video of the incident went viral, amassing hundreds of thousands of views. 

Was this a bully cop exposed? Or was this officer provoked?

The Washington Township Police Department tells HLN “[The officer is] on administrative leave, and we’re investigating fully. We’ll take appropriate steps after the findings.”
