Highway crews pin KSP trooper down in confrontation

Published on Sep 25, 2017

RADCLIFF, Ky. (WHAS11) Kentucky State Police are investigating the actions of an off-duty trooper who was involved in a physical confrontation which ended with the trooper being pinned to the ground by a road work crew. A forty-four-second Video posted to Facebook shows part of the confrontation and the point where it got physical. “Don’t yell at me,” Scotty’s Contracting crew member Cindy West could be heard yelling to a man dressed in a t-shirt and shorts. “I will yell at you,” the man shouted back, “Or what? Kentucky State Police confirmed the trooper is Anthony Harrison, who has been a state trooper since 2013. “He was going to get somebody killed, because him sitting in the middle of the road, all it takes is for a semi to come flying in there because that’s what they do and see there’s nowhere to go,” crew member Damon Johnson said. Johnson said Harrison was upset because he felt as though there was not enough warning for drivers alerting them to the work zone along Dixie Highway near the Hardin-Meade County Line. “Twelve or thirteen of us all together, flashing lights, orange traffic cones, a lady standing there with a large ‘slow’ sign, and a flashing wand pointing at the ‘slow’ sign which he blasted right by,” Johnson countered.
