DOVER, Del. (CBS/AP) — Delaware State Police say they are reviewing a traffic stop in which a trooper is seen on cell phone video pulling a gun on the driver. Forty-year-old Mack Buckley of Lincoln captured the Feb. 14 encounter on video and posted it on Facebook.
The trooper opened the car door after Buckley refused a command to get out of the car. The officer then drew his gun after Buckley continued to resist.
“The Delaware State Police initiated an internal investigation as soon as we became of the incident as per divisional policy,” Delaware State Police said in a statement.
Buckley is charged with resisting arrest, driving at an unreasonable speed, and failure to have insurance identification and registration. An arraignment is scheduled for March 18.
Court records show Buckley has an arrest record dating to 1999, with convictions for DUI, drug possession, maintaining a vehicle for keeping drugs, criminal impersonation and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.
