As it turns out, the cop who arrested Bengals defensive end Sam Montgomery this summer ended up in more trouble than Montgomery.
According to the Associated Press, the South Carolina state trooper who arrested Montgomery at a traffic stop last June was fired.
The state Department of Public Safety said Lance Cpl. R.S. Salter was terminated for “violating agency policies including conduct unbecoming a state employee.”
Salter stopped Montgomery for speeding (89 in a 55 mph zone), but threatened to use a Taser on him when he didn’t understand his commands.
For all the problems Montgomery has caused himself in his short career, this wasn’t one of them.
