DA Caught On Body Camera Footage Refusing Traffic Stop

Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley is under fire after body camera footage captured her refusing to stop for a police officer who attempted to pull her over for speeding. The incident which occurred on Monday has led to calls for an investigation into Doorley’s behavior and her fitness to serve as district attorney.

According to the footage, Doorley was driving 55 mph in a 35 mph zone when the officer tried to conduct a traffic stop. Instead of pulling over, Doorley continued driving to her house and pulled into her garage telling the officer she “didn’t feel like stopping” and was “stressed” about murder cases she was dealing with.

Doorley then called local Police Chief Dennis Kohlmeier demanding that he tell the officer to “leave me alone” and referring to the officer as an “a—hole.” The case reached municipal court on Tuesday where Doorley pleaded guilty.

The Rochester City Council has sent a letter to New York Attorney General Letitia James calling for an investigation into the incident. The letter stated that the body camera footage “has raised significant concerns regarding Ms. Doorley’s behavior during a traffic stop in Webster, New York” and that the council members question her fitness to serve as district attorney.

In a statement, Doorley attempted to explain her actions saying that when she realized the officer intended to pull her over she called the police chief to inform him that she was not a threat and that she would speak to the officer at her house down the street. She claimed to accept responsibility and said she “had no intention of using my position to receive a benefit.”
