19 Action News has learned a Cleveland policeman was named a field training officer, even though the feds just outed him for “poor tactics” in the shooting and wounding of an unarmed man.
Officer Vincent Montague accidentally shot a man in the chest. In June 2013, officer Montague was questioning a man about an illegal turn in the Warehouse District. When he reached into the car with his gun drawn, a shot was fired.
Outgoing union president Jeff Follmer defends Montague, saying his gun went off in that shooting because the driver yanked on the gun or tried to grab it.
Montague was disciplined for that incident, but only for a day.
