Police Officer John Kovach from Lorraine, Ohio, attempted to arrest the boyfriend of his 18-year-old daughter. He reported his daughter missing and suicidal. He tracked down and pulled over her boyfriend, Makai Coleman, 18, not knowing his daughter was in the backseat.

In the dashcam video, which was released this month, the officer is heard saying to the young man when asked why he was being arrested, “we’ll make it up as we go along.” He also threatened to give a ticket to another passenger for failure to wear a seatbelt, which the friend vehemently denied doing.

Kovach, a 26-year veteran, was fired May 11, after the Lorain Police Department found the traffic stop was an “abuse of power.”

He put the young man in the backseat and a woman, who appeared to be his mother, started questioning the officer and she, too, was threatened with arrest. The officer’s daughter was in the backseat and when she was discovered, he threw her in the back of his police car and let the boyfriend go. T

his altercation happened on April 16, 2018. Kovach was fired from the department in May because of this incident. This dashcam video is a public record.
