  1. I was at the scene (as press) and was very impressed with the way Officer Buttersworth handled it, calmly with professionalism, a true role model to other officers. MR.

  2. Sgt Butterworth handles everything with class. I heard he used the LPD state of the art GPS system to locate the subject. Kudos Sgt

  3. I cannot figure out these police chases, they put every driver on the road in danger, just because someone ran away from a routine police stop!! So big deal he ran away so he wont get a ticket !his license is suspended?is that such a big deal! why put the whole road in danger!???!!

  4. It wasn’t just a traffic stop he dragged a cop during a stop, he does that to a cop what would he do to you, better yet if it happened to you and cops didn’t go after him you would be filing complaints left and right

  5. Lakewood PD is consistent with their professionalism. They are Lakewood’s Finest.

    For criminals that run, or engage in unlawful acts to try to avoid justice, I have no compassion. Become a decent person, and you will avoid these types of issues. If you choose not to, then rot in jail until you kick your habit and learn how to live in society.

  6. #10 nudnik- How does caling the officer by his correct title “realy” matter for this report?
    Its something called “respect”. I know a lot of Lakewooders do not know the meaning of that word but maybe you should look it up.
    Keep up the great work LPD & SGT Butterworth

  7. Ahh… You should look into this story a little more. Most of your info is incorrect. It started in Brick, not mantaloking. Yes, Police officer was hit and dragged. Pursuit continued through Brick, ended in Lakewood.
