Oklahoma City, OK – Trooper in scuffle with paramedic remains on leave
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) An investigation into a scuffle in which a state trooper choked a paramedic is under review and the attorney for the paramedic says he's tired of the lack of action.
Trooper Daniel Martin has been on paid leave since June 1 after a video of the May 24 incident with Creek Nation paramedic Maurice White Jr. surfaced.
White's attorney Richard O'Carroll says the OHP and Department of Public Safety are hoping to stall until people stop asking questions.
OHP Capt. Chris West says the investigation has finished and is being reviewed by OHP Col. Van Guillotte and state Public Safety Department Commissioner Kevin Ward. West says the results of the investigation likely will be announced soon.
