A police car was filmed by a surveillance camera running over a homeless woman in Houston, Texas, and driving off.
Aldine Independent School District Police Officer Omario Gatheright was charged with failure to stop and render aid.
Alice Limone told KPRC that she was walking across the street when the car hit her:
I fell off the hood. He pulled back around and said, ‘I’ll be back for you.’ (He) Took off and just left me on the ground.
Assistant District Attorney Sean Teare said Gatheright’s girlfriend tried to claim she was the driver:
Once the defendant was challenged with footage and witness statements that it was marked police unit, once that happened, he confessed to being the operator of the vehicle.
