A white Ohio police officer was fired after detaining his daughter’s black boyfriend without cause, according to chroniclet.com.
John Kovach Jr., a cop in Lorain, pulled over his daughter’s 18-year-old boyfriend, Makai Coleman, and proceeded to tell him he would be “going to jail” while offering no explanation for the audacious traffic stop.
When Coleman asks why he’s being detained, Kovach responds, “You’re going to jail. Have a seat in my car. We’ll make s–t up as we go.”
The cop was reportedly looking for his daughter, Kaitlyn — and unbeknownst to him, she was in the backseat of Coleman’s car at the time of the stop.
Before he spots her, Kovach gets into an argument with Gloria Morales, whose two children were also in Coleman’s car. The teen had been pulled over in front of Morales’ home.
Kovach informs Morales he wants to search her house for his daughter.
Morales tells him she isn’t there — and if he wants to enter, he would need to return with a warrant.
The officer then threatens to give Morales’ daughter a $300 ticket for not wearing a seat belt.
“You’re making this personal,” Morales tells Kovach. When she says she will call 911, he threatens to take her to jail as well.
Eventually, Kovach spots his daughter in the backseat and pleads with her to exit the car.
The disturbing dashcam footage goes on to show Kovach squabbling with his daughter, who ulitmately gives into her father’s wishes and leaves with him.
