The Michigan Attorney General’s office has surprised Saginaw officials after charging three police officers for not intervening with a state police trooper accused of punching a handcuffed man.
State police trooper Bram Schroeder is accused of assault and misconduct in office for allegedly punching Vance Martin several times on March 28 during a traffic stop in Saginaw. Martin was pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving after speeding and running stop signs. The incident was captured on a police body camera and from a civilian cell phone video. Schroeder can be seen punching Martin in the face, then punching four more times in the head after he was handcuffed.
Trooper Zachary Tebedo and Saginaw Police Officers Justin Englehart and Dominic Vasquez were also on the scene and are charged with neglect of duty for failing to intervene with Schroeder.
