Warning, the video you are about to see is graphic in nature…. Former New York Giants running back Jermaine Green was shot by Daytona Beach police while he was holding his girlfriend hostage according to the New York Daily News. Green, 32, was shot in his home at least four times in the leg and once in the stomach. He has since recovered and is being held without bond. “At the end of the day I am proud of those officers. They deserve to be commended,” said former Philadelphia and current Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood. The footage released by Wesh.com, is graphic and shows officers responding to the scene, gathering some information, kicking the door down, and encountering Green in a back bedroom. Officer Richard Maher’s body camera shows Green holding his girlfriend at knife point in the doorway of a bedroom, then pulling her back, falling onto the bed with her on top of him. Officer Kevin Connelly’s camera picks up repeat warnings to Green — commands to drop the weapon that Green ignores. “Let her go, dude. Let her go let her go, man,” the officers are heard saying. “I’m telling you right now.” “They saved that woman’s life. Even in her interview, she admits that she thought he was going to kill her. She thought Jermaine Green was going to kill her that night,” said Chitwood. Green had the knife to girlfriend Katrina Johnson’s throat. He lowered it to her chest, ready to stab her. Chitwood said the Florida Department of Law Enforcement has already examined the video. “They broke it down frame by frame, and there’s a point in there where you can actually see the knife start to bend because he’s pushing with that much force into her chest,” he said.

  • Chitwood wasn't a Philly chief. He was the chief in the Darby Yeadon area. VERY different job descriptions. Philly has about 1.6 million citizens, Darby/Yeadon has fewer than 50K.
