An Ohio police chief personally thanked four good Samaritans who swooped in and helped an officer who was being attacked by a man during a traffic stop.

The suspect, David Koubeck, 64, was pulled over for speeding by Officer Stacee Wright, 30, along Lost Nation Road in Willoughby in suburban Cleveland. 

Wright pulled Koubeck over for speeding on September 10. The suspect was going 57 mph in a 35 mph zone, Wright is heard telling him in the dashcam footage.

The shocking video shows Koubeck ignoring Wright’s request for his license as he exits his 2009 black Chevrolet Malibu. Koubeck insists that he needed to go to the back of the car to get his driver’s license. Wright is seen contacting the Willoughby Police Department for back-up.

Wright demands that Koubeck sit on the curb; however he yells, ‘I’m not sitting! I’m not sitting!’

After the suspect further declined multiple orders from Wright to put his hands behind his back or on the vehicle, a “physical struggle” ensued.

Koubeck appears to overtake Wright in the struggle, until, four good Samaritans appear to aid Wright and subdue Koubeck. 

“You don’t do that to a woman. Do you understand me?” one person yells at Koubeck.
