SCDPS suspends trooper following Montgomery's arrest

A S.C. Highway patrol trooper has been suspended after arresting former GHS star and current Cincinnati Bengal Sam Montgomery.

According to SCHP officials, Lance Cpl. R.S. Salter was suspended Thursday after arresting Montgomery for speeding around 12:30 a.m. Thursday for speeding. Montgomery was arrested after allegedly going 89 mph in a 55 mph zone. Salter, a 14-year veteran of SCHP, is suspended pending the outcome of an investigation surrounding the traffic stop which led to Montgomery's arrest, officials said.

If you can get a ticket for it you can go to jail. Look up the law. Stupid people think they are above the law. Race has nothing to do with stupidity.

You are so right about being racist. I was stopped for doing exceeding the speed limit by more that 25 miles per hour and I too, was taken to jail. Now for the racist part, I am white, the arresting officer was white and their was a second officer riding as a passenger and he was white also (now a judge). Us white folk sure are racist.

Jane your comment is laughable. He had already made up his mind to arrest him before the cop even got out of his car, this is nothing more than a cop on a power trip. Nothing to do with skin color. Also you are correct, racism is still thriving in our society, but you left out the part about the majority of racist being black, not white. Your comment above proves you are still a racist, by always having to play the race card. .

Why should an officer be suspended for doing his job? I guess money can buy anything.I praise the officer.
