Tow Truck Driver Refuses to Haul Stranded Motorist With 'Bernie' Stickers on Car Bush 41, 43 Won't Endorse Trump, Romney Won't Attend GOP Convention Don't Go to Chick-Fil-A, Mayor De Blasio Tells New Yorkers Authorities have released dramatic body camera video of the shooting of a Tennessee police officer, which sparked a major manhunt last fall.
Algood Police Officer Ashcari Valencia pulled over Floyd Ray Cook on October 24.
In the off season you’re expected to make appearances, support charities, and inspire young kids to pursue your sport and all sports.
With everything the NFL has gone through in recent years, I’m confident they have advised that you are, by virtue of your position and career choice, a role model.
And because you are a role model, your behavior brought out like behavior in the stands.
Valencia's body cam shows him approach Cook's black pickup truck and ask him several questions. Fortunately, he was wearing a bulletproof vest, which almost certainly saved his life and allowed him to escape with minor injuries.
Valencia notices Cook's vehicle is in reverse, and he asks why. Cook fled to Kentucky and led law enforcement on a multiple-day manhunt.
And as Newton pointed out, fans of the player love when he does it, instructing him to “Dab on them folks! And everyone who saw him “Dab on them folks” in Tennessee loved it enough to share the clip of Newton’s dance moves all over social media. One woman, a Tennessee mother by the name of Rosemary Plorin, was outraged by the display and felt that Newton was demonstrating unsportsmanlike conduct. And she was excited we were near the end zone, so we would be close to the “action,” particularly in the second half. The arrogant struts and the ‘in your face’ taunting of both the Titans’ players and fans. I refuse to believe you don’t realize you are a role model.
If you’ve been following (American) football, you probably heard that over the weekend, while playing against the Titans in Tennessee, Cam Newton whipped out a popular dance called “The Dab” to celebrate scoring a touchdown.And not just any touchdown, but an incredibly hard one that involved the Carolina Panthers quarterback rushing, pushing and holding on to the pigskin for dear life to get through Titan defense and over the goal line. So the 6’5″ star quarterback danced to his heart’s content for eight seconds doing “The Dab,” a dance that was popularized by Atlanta-based rap group Migos and has since spread. Newtown (born and bred in Atlanta) then lifted both arms in the air, as if flexing, all to a beat in his head. That was until members of the defense, salty about Newton’s celebration, rushed at him.In a defiant response, Newton continued to dance right in their faces for another second or two. That game happened to be my nine year old daughter’s first live NFL experience.As he put it in a post-game press conference, “I’m a firm believer if you don’t like me to do it, then don’t let me in.” As in, don’t let him in the end zone. Newton, Congratulations on your win in Nashville today. She was surprised to see so many Panthers’ fans sitting in our section of the stadium; that doesn’t happen much at fourth grade football games.Cook suddenly pulls out a handgun and fires at least 10 shots at Valencia. He was eventually killed in a shootout with officers a week later.
Valencia quickly flees while alerting other officers over his radio. Valencia has since left the Algood Police Department, and transferred to work at Tennessee Tech University.
