Police Officers Plant Drugs On Suspect Police Dog Attacks

The police department in Cookeville, Tennessee, is facing a very serious charge in a lawsuit alleging that its officers first used a police dog to attack a suspect, Carlos Ferell, without cause and then plant drugs on him. The scene is captured on this video — as well as officers mocking Ferell once the drugs are pulled from his pocket. The video shows an encounter on the night of June 4, 2007, after Ferell’s ex-wife, Tiffany, called police on a domestic assault charge. Ferell initially fled, causing a chase. When he was told to get out of the car, he complies with orders to put his hands up by Cookeville police Officer Chris Melton. He is then attacked without cause by a police dog held by Officer Jeff Johnson. There is no visible reason why Johnson released the dog, which bites Ferell repeatedly. Ferell is heard objecting, saying “Your dog just ate my leg off.” The video then shows Melton searching Ferell’s pockets half a dozen times and finding nothing. Another officer appears to give him a signal and Melton immediately looks back at the camera, pulls something from his pocket, and (using the same hand) seems to put something into Ferell’s pocket.
