Jersey City police officers will not face jail time but lost their jobs after they entered guilty pleas for charges stemming from their actions when they were caught on camera kicking a man after a fiery 2017 crash, authorities said Tuesday.

Police were chasing Leo Pinkston on June 4, 2017, at a high speed for 6 miles in Jersey City before Pinkston crashed into a car driven by Miguel Feliz-Rodriguez. Three officers fired shots at Pinkston's vehicle during the chase. 

Both cars caught fire, and when Feliz-Rodriguez got out of his car, he was seen being kicked by several officers. His clothing was on fire when he got out of the vehicle. He was also dragged by his legs on the ground away from the vehicle.

Lt. Keith Ludwig and Officer M.D. Khan were seen on video kicking Feliz-Rodriguez. Khan pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, and Ludwig will be entered into a Pretrial Intervention program to expunge the charges, the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office said.

Officers Eric Kosinski and Francisco Rodriguez each pleaded guilty to endangering another person. Kosinski, Rodriguez and Khan each fired their weapons during the pursuit.

All four former officers are barred from future law enforcement employment.

“This agreement is substantive in that it provides accountability for the actions of the police officers while at the same time taking into account the input of the victim,” Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said in a statement. “It is the most fair and just resolution in a difficult case.”

Feliz-Rodriguez, who filed a lawsuit related to the incident, was consulted during the plea agreement and agrees with it, the Prosecutor's Office said.

Pinkston also took a plea deal in February 2018.

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop denounced the actions of the officers in the aftermath of the 2017 crash.

"We view the actions on June 4 as a breakdown at multiple levels of leadership," Fulop said during a press conference in June 2017.

Now that criminal proceedings are done city officials will conduct their own review, a Jersey City spokeswoman said. 


Poster Comment:

Jersey City police were pursuing Pinkston, 48, on the night of June 4, 2017, and had attempted to kill him by firing rounds into his vehicle. He fled, but crashed into another car which was pushed into a telephone pole.

The car Pinkston crashed into then caught on fire. The innocent man inside the car—Feliz—was able to escape the flames, but not without injury. His clothes and skin were burning.

As Feliz scrambles to take off his burning clothes as he gets out of the fire, a bystander named Erik Roberto was filming the scene. Roberto screamed to the police, “Oh no…no…Help him out! Help him out!”

But they did the exact opposite.

“They didn’t help him. They just started kicking him and dragging him…I don’t think they treated him in the right way and that’s not how you treat any human being in this world,” Roberto lamented to reporters.

After police rapidly approached the man, with guns drawn, they began kicking him in the ribs and head, apparently mistaking him for Pinkston. It was only after kicking and beating him that they then decided to drag him away from the flames of the burning vehicle.

“I thought they were there to help,” Feliz said.

“But obviously not.”
