Police dash cam:MOUNT JULIET, Tenn.Tennessee authorities said they are investigating a dashcam video that allegedly shows a police officer choking a suspect during a traffic stop.
The video was taken by a camera inside a Mount Juliet, Tenn., police officer's patrol car.
Police said it shows Officer William Cosby with both hands around the neck of the suspect until the suspect appears to pass out.
Cosby claimed he smelled marijuana and told the suspect he was holding him by the neck to keep him from swallowing evidence.
Cosby has received a reprimand in his files for the incident.
However, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is still trying to determine if more action should be taken against the officer.
Anders was arrested on charges of possessing marijuana, resisting arrest, and tampering with evidence. The charges were later dismissed because of the police officer’s behavior. Cosby was reprimanded and the tape was handed over to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
