NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation say it is now investigating an Alpharetta police officer after a traffic stop involving a 65-year-old grandmother.
Officer James Legg resigned from the department Friday afternoon over dash cam video that appears to show Legg cussing at and pulling Rose Campbell, 65, out of her SUV near Ga. 400 and Windward Parkway.
Alpharetta police told Petchenik they originally suspended Officer James Legg and opened an internal investigation into what happened. Legg resigned Friday afternoon, according to his lawyer.
Campbell, who is also a Lyft driver, was ticketed for failing to maintain her lane, and she refused to sign the ticket, which resulted in the officer trying to take her to jail.
She talked to Petchenik exclusively Thursday.
