Internal affairs investigators in the St. Louis County Police Department are probing the actions of an officer after residents complained that he drove too quickly through their subdivision and arrested a man who took issue with him.
The officer, whom Schellman refused to identify, drove into the subdivision east of Highway 141 in his patrol car. Two residents interviewed by the Post-Dispatch say the officer was driving with his lights but no siren on and coming too fast around the corner and down the street.
“He was flying down the road. We thought he was going to ram the firetruck,” said Brent Williams, one resident. “He had to be doing 50 or 60 mph. Had to be.”
