The Lawrence Police Department has released dashcam video of an officer shooting a motorist after a traffic stop that escalated into a fight. Akira S. Lewis, 35, for not wearing a seat belt, arguing with that officer, Ian McCann, who eventually calls for backup to arrest Lewis when he refuses to provide his identification.

McCann and backup officer Brindley Blood try unsuccessfully to handcuff Lewis. Lewis then jumps out of the vehicle, punches McCann and tackles him. Blood runs to the men grappling on the pavement and shoots.She later told investigators she mistakenly drew and fired her gun instead of her Taser.Blood recently resigned from the police department in late January. Previously she had been on paid administrative leave. Lewis also is charged in the 2018 incident, with battery against a law enforcement officer, interference with law enforcement and driving without proof of insurance, all misdemeanors, and failure to wear a seat belt, a traffic infraction.

At the time of the traffic stop and shooting, Lewis also had arrest warrants for failures to appear in court in three older traffic cases, one in Douglas County District Court, one in Lawrence Municipal Court and one in Johnson County District Court, according to court records obtained by the Journal-World. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office investigation into the Lawrence shooting confirmed Lewis’ driver’s license had been suspended since September 2017 with no eligibility date for reinstatement, and that he’d been ticketed six times since 2010 for driving without a valid license.

"TASER TASER TASER...BANG..oh shit, I shot him" With a surname like Blood it's to be expected really.

You know that guy didn't have a driver's license, expired tags, no insurance, open containers, stolen guns, weed in the trunk, crack rock in the glove box, suspended or revoked index, warrants and this dude trying to act like he's pissed for getting stopped for not wearing his seatbelt, dude ain't had no business behind the wheel. With that being said, his ass will probably get a little money for being shot, he and his long lost parents will ask for 50 million. If I was the judge I'd add up all the time the state's has supported his ass in jail. Plus all his fines and court costs, award him that amount and then order his fined to be paid immediately, never hits his pocket.

He tried the race card then attempted to curse his way out of a ticket.

I have to commend the cop for only using one bullet, outstanding discipline.

She was like “oh shit I shot it” she probably didn’t even expect to shoot it once.

Moronically illogical and violently impulse/emotion driven. They love getting shot.

He was getting pulled over for a seat belt violation? So when did insurance company's start to make the laws?

In America it's law, nothing to do with insurance at all. Some states like New Hampshire only make you wear it untill you're 18 then you don't have to, also in New Hampshire you don't have to have insurance on your car and hardly anyone gets into accidents. Do you have to wear it in the UK? Are there insurance police that only handle seat belts? I'm trying to understand wtf kind of laws you guys have over there lol. Y'all even have police for cable tele XD

As a member of the Fucking Douche Alliance of America, I am hear to tell you that it is not easy being a fucking douche. We try hard but still we wrestle with rats in the gutter for our food and we do get confused as to why we just can't have your stuff. But I will not put up with someone flippantly suggesting that we should be casually associated with the outrageous piece of shit portrayed here in this video who is probably a card carrying member of the Piece of Shit Society of America who we are not associated with in any way. OK, there might be some truth that we are in the same Union, however as members of "The Brotherhood of Complete Assholes #354," we do not agree with their policies and we've never attended their rallies. Fuuuuck Them!!
