KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Dashcam video shows a Kalamazoo police officer saved a choking woman during a traffic stop.
It happened around 11:35 a.m. Saturday in the 4100 block of S. Burdick Street, according to the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety. Officer Jason Gates pulled over a van for running a red light at Cork Street.
“I didn’t really intend to issue her a ticket, but I thought I really wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t at least stop her and talk to her,” Gates told 24 Hour News 8 Tuesday.
