The incident occurred in July 2020 when the woman, Nicole Harper, was en route to her home, reportedly driving 84 MPH in a 70 MPH zone. This prompted Sr. Cpl. Rodney Dunn to flash his lights and try to pull her over. The lawsuit claims Harper turned on her hazard lights and began slowing down in an attempt to find a safe place to pull over.
However, Sr. Cpl. Dunn apparently didn’t think Harper was moving fast enough as he employed the controversial PIT (Precision Immobilization Technique) to get Harper to stop her vehicle. But Dunn’s maneuver ended with Harper’s SUV flipping over.
“There was a less dangerous and more safe avenue that could have been taken before flipping her vehicle and making it bounce off a concrete barrier going 60 miles an hour,” said Harper’s attorney Andrew Norwood.
