Lieutenant shoves wheelchair-bound man A 33-minute dashboard camer video depicting a Lafayette, Indiana Lieutenant toppling a man in a wheelchair into the street has been released by the Lafayette Police Department nine months after the Oct. 1, 2013 incident.
In the video, Lt. Tom Davidson is engaged in a conversation with 25-year-old Nicholas Kincade, who is in a motorized wheelchair.
Kincade, according to police reports, told employees from a charte school nearby that he was armed with a gun.
Officers quickly determined that Kincade didn’t have a gun, but they found a pocket knife that Kincade said he carried for protection.
School personnel had asked police to inform Kincade that he was no longer welcome near the school.
Police Chief Patrick Flannelly said Tuesday that Kincade had started to leave when he collided with Davidson.
A report prepared by Davidson states that he “gave a two handed strike, open handed” to Kincade’s right shoulder when the subject
drove the powered chair onto his foot and shin.
The video shows Kincade falling from his wheelchair as it topples. He sustained facial abrasions when he struck the pavement.
