Charges won't be filed in trooper scuffle case
Last Update: 6/05 5:01 pm
Charges won't be filed against troopers or a paramedic, involved in a scuffle near Paden. That's in Okfuskee County.
The paramedic's attorney, Richard O'Carroll, says, "We are disappointed the district attorney did not file charges against the trooper. While we understand his position politically, we believe it would have gone a long way in resolving the matter."
Video surfaced of the scuffle last month, and shows the men came to blows while a patient waited to be taken to the hospital.
The patient's son recorded the clash on his cell phone.
He says the argument started after the ambulance failed to yield to troopers en route to a call.
But the man says the ambulance driver was busy trying to avoid a car that slowed down, and wasn't aware that troopers were nearby until it was too late.
