Trooper who arrested Bengals' Montgomery fired

Updated: Friday, August 22 2014, 05:17 PM EDT
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The South Carolina state trooper who arrested NFL defensive lineman Sam Montgomery at a traffic stop last June was fired.

The state Department of Public Safety said Friday that Lance Cpl. R.S. Salter was terminated for violating agency policies including conduct unbecoming a state employee. Salter stopped Montgomery in June when the Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman was returning to his home in Greenwood.

Montgomery was arrested and spent a night in jail after Salter clocked him going 89 mph in a 55 mph zone. But the trooper's dashboard camera also captured the officer threatening to use a taser because the 6-foot-3, 262-pound lineman was struggling to understand his commands.

The agency said Salter's interaction with Montgomery was inconsistent with how troopers are trained to conduct themselves during such traffic stops.Trooper who arrested Bengals' Montgomery fired
