OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- The Oklahoma Highway Patrol refuses to release its video of this clash between first responders.
Amateur video showed a trooper holding a paramedic by the neck.
OHP insisted video captured by its troopers' dash cameras would exonerate them and show that the fight started when one of the paramedics assaulted a trooper.
The News On 6 was told OHP couldn't release the dashcam video because it was part of an investigation.
The criminal investigation wrapped up on Friday, and The News On 6 filed the paperwork to see the video, but the Oklahoma Highway Patrol denied the request, saying the video isn't covered by the Oklahoma Open Records Act.
