614 14TH ST NW
At approximately 2050 hours on 11/28/12 while traveling East bound on 14th St NW I was stopped at a red light at its intersection with Northside Dr NW near 614 14th St NW. While stopped at the red light I observed Ofc Dobler and Ofc West, 3501 2 man car, on a traffic stop (case number 123332618) on West bound 14th St NW just past its intersection with Northside Dr NW. Ofc Dobler had parked his vehicle in the right hand lane of 14th St NW as far to the right as practical to ensure safe passage for traffic traveling West bound on 14th St NW in the Left hand lane through its intersecton with Northside Dr NW. It was at this time that Ofc Dobler had already exited his patrol vehicle and was standing between his patrol vehicle and the vehicle he had pulled over waiting for West bound traffic on 14th St NW to ease before making his approach to the stopped vehicle. Neither Ofc Dobler nor Ofc West were in the left land lane of travel for 14th St NW and both officers were standing in a place of safety. I also observed Ofc. Dobler and Ofc. West both had their backs turned to West bound traffic as they were at that particular moment focusing on the vehicle they had stopped and its occupants. It was at this time I observed a grey in color Dodge Ram pick up traveling West bound on 14th St NW through its intersection with Northside Dr NW. I then observed as the pick up passed Ofc. Dobler and Ofc. West the driver of the pick up honked his horn at the officers as he drive past. The driver did not honk as he approached the patrol vehicle and the officers as a method to warn them of his approach instead choosing to honk at them after the front of his vehicle passed them. The honk was also for an unreasonable amount of time. The driver chose to hold his horn down for an unreasonable amount of time and did not let off of the horn until his entire vehicle had passed the car that Ofc. Dobler had stopped. Ofc Dobler later stated to me this honk caused him to flintch and as well as take his eye off of the vehicle he had stopped. Ofc. Dobler stated to me later he had not yet made an initial approach on the vehicle and the unnecessary honking of the horn cause him take away his attention from the vehicle and driver placing him in an unsafe situation due to not being to able to observe the driver during his approach. This incident also occurred at a very busy intersection with vehicles moving in all direction and at a time of darkness. After observing the unnecessary and improper use of a vehicle horn I turned my vehicle 180 degrees and traveled after the pick up to conduct a traffic. I turned on my blue lights and the driver, identified as Terry Burchell (W/M) (DOB 5/18/76) (GA OLN 051020118), of the pick up(GA tag AGS9784) turned into a parking lot at 1183 Howell Mill Rd NW. I exited my vehicle and approached Burchell and advised him as to the reason for the stop. Burchell then admitted to honking at the officers on the traffic stop. He then stated the reason he had honked was to warn the officers of his approach however he had already passed them when he honked. He also stated he believed the officers made an "unsafe" traffic stop so that is why he honked at them. I then asked Burchell for his license and he provided a valid class C license. Then returned to my patrol vehicle to complete a traffic citation. After completing the citation I returned to Burchell's vehicle and issued him a citation for improper use of Horn O.C.G.A. 40-8-70(a). He was released on a copy of charges without incident.
