A Tennessee police officer has been suspended without pay for a single day over delaying a motorist whose mother was dying in the back seat, according to published reports.
Deputy Micah McNinch pulled over Wayne Ables on March 12 after 2 a.m. as he raced his infirmed mother to a hospital just a mile from the site of the stop. McNinch pulled Ables over for expired tags and, as evidenced in new video released to news agencies, kept the pair there while an ambulance and fire truck were en route.
After 11 minutes, the emergency vehicles arrived. The driver had pleaded with the officer to escort them to the hospital a mere five minutes away.
