In April, Ohio police officer John Kovach initiated a traffic stop that investigators say was purely personal.
During all this, Kovach is said to have ignored a call from dispatch about a road rage incident, according to the internal investigation.
Kovach was sacked May 11 and Lorain County Prosecutor Dennis Will is now reviewing the case.
Safety-Service Director Dan Given fired Kovach in May after placing the veteran officer on administrative leave following an April 16 incident.
According to court documents, Kovach said he didn't like Coleman because he had a prior marijuana arrest and he didn't want Katlyn with him.
Kovach was looking for his daughter, Katlyn, whom the officer did not know was in the back seat of Coleman's vehicle.
Dashcam footage from Kovach's patrol vehicle shows Coleman asking why he is being arrested. He then tells the two other people to get out of the vehicle, which is when the cop sees his 18-year-old daughter hiding in the backseat. He told her to get out and pushed her into the cruiser while she protested that she is 18 and can not be arrested without cause, the Chronicle-Telegram reports. Daddy, why are pushing me? He told investigators he did not approve of his daughter's relationship with Coleman, but didn't give a reason.
The officer then claims to Coleman that his daughter was suicidal that previous Friday.
He releases his daughter's boyfriend of at least three months from his cruiser, and then shoves his own daughter into the backseat of the cop vehicle.
In an off-camera exchange between Kovach and his daughter, she is heard saying he couldn't take her because she was 18.
After arguing with her and the driver, Kovach says he's taking her to the hospital because "she said she was gonna kill herself Friday". Kovach can be heard asking Morales if his daughter is inside the house, as well as inquiring why her computer is apparently in the house.
Morales tells him to obtain a search warrant if he wants to search her home.
The investigation also found that Kovach lied to his supervisors about the incident.
Lorain Police Chief Cel Rivera said Kovach Jr.'s actions were "an abuse of police authority and a serious departure from appropriate protocol...they are contrary to the mission, values and policies of the Lorain Police Department". He is appealing his termination.
Kyle Gelenius, president of Fraternal Order of Police Lorain Lodge #3, said Kovach will be contesting his case, reports The Morning Journal.
They say the city violated Kovach's contractual rights by firing him.
