An Ohio police offer was fired after dashcam video showed him detaining a black man who was dating his daughter without cause and threatening to jail him on falsified charges, The Chronicle-Telegram reports.
John Kovach Jr. pulled over his daughter Katlyn’s car without cause and ordered her boyfriend, 18-year-old Makai Coleman, out of the vehicle.
“You’re going to jail,” Kovach told Coleman.
“What for?” Coleman asked.
“We’ll make up shit as we go,” Kovach said.
Katlyn is seen getting out of the car and yelling at her father.
According to a police report, Kovach said he did not trust Coleman to be with his daughter because of his criminal record.
Safety Service Director Dan Given said Kovach’s actions were “not acceptable” and “warranted an immediate dismissal.”
