In a viral video, a Georgia trooper stomps on an armed man after a foot chase, causing uproar.
The unidentified trooper is now being investigated, and the suspect has been charged with many offenses.
A video of a Georgia trooper repeatedly striking a guy with his foot has gone popular on the internet. According to reports, the suspect, Jamarco Kintavious Lucas, was armed and fleeing officers when the altercation occurred on October 3. Lucas was reportedly caught driving a 2019 Dodge Challenger without a seatbelt on Atlanta’s Downtown Connector, according to sources.
When the Decatur native, who was sought in nearby Rockdale County on a battery charge, was requested to halt, he bolted, according to Lt Mark Riley, a spokesperson for the Georgia State Patrol. Riley further stated that Lucas then got out of his car and began fleeing, prompting the trooper to pursue him on foot.

Riley said the trooper claimed to see a firearm fall from Lucas’ waistband at that point. The 27-year-old accused then tried to get up, but was stomped by the trooper, who “saw a firearm resting on the sidewalk between his location and a bystander” while handcuffing him. The trooper returned Lucas to his patrol truck after recovering the pistol.

Though the trooper’s actions are still being investigated, the Georgia Department of Public Safety’s policy manual indicates that cops can use physical force to apprehend a person. “I think that’s a clear case of excessive force,” activist Scotty Smart told a local ABC station. We already have someone on the ground. It’s not necessary to step on him. Two or three times stomping on him appears to be an emotional reaction.” People on Twitter have also voiced their opinions.
