Cop who switched off traffic cam in order to make illegal threats will keep his job
Officer Todd Mobley, of the Niles, Ohio Police Department, is back on the job, with no criminal charges, after an internal investigation concluded that he illegally used his position to threaten a family, and that he turned off his dash cam in order to avoid having his actions recorded,
On November 25, 2014, the Ohio cop followed Lindsay Mulhull and her boyfriend, Tom Huffman, to her home, according to her complaint. There, he accused Huffman of stealing a gas can from his (Mobley’s) mother’s house.
“He tells me to get my kids back. I turn my back and that is when he pushes Tommy up against the cop car by his shirt and presses up against his neck and says ‘you’re dead if I ever catch you around my mother’s house again. I will kill you.’ And he just keeps repeating ‘You’re dead. You’re dead.’”
During the incident, another Niles police officer — unidentified, as of this post — arrived on the scene. Mobley then instructed that officer to turn off his own dash cam, claiming that it was necessary for a legitimate law enforcement purpose, even though, actually, it was to prevent his own actions from being recorded.
Ms. Mulhull reported the incident to the Niles Police Department’s Internal Affairs unit, who investigated her complaint. On Thursday, they issued a 21-page report, indicating that the Ohio cop did, in fact, violate several department policies.
Those violations include:
- Use of force violations.
- Unlawful search and seizure or detention.
- Failure to control his temper.
- Misuse of his police cruiser dash camera
