Indiana officer to keep job after pushing over man in wheelchair

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE, IN (WALB) -

Shocking video released by police in Indiana that went viral online sparked outrage after footage showed an officer toppling over a man in his wheelchair.

The incident happened on October 1, 2013. The video was later released by police in Lafayette, Indiana.

According to a report, officers responded when they were told 25-year-old Nicholas Kincade, who is also a paraplegic, was armed with a gun near a charter school.

Police determined that Kincade was not armed, but asked him to leave the area. As he did, he ran over Lt. Tom Davidson's foot.

The video shows Davidson then shoved Kincade to the ground.

Kincade was arrested at the scene, but the charge was later thrown out.

After an internal investigation, Davidson was demoted and given a 30 day unpaid suspension, but was not fired from his job.
