Pennsylvania State Police have released dash cam footage from a violent shootout with a speeder that left State Trooper Seth Kelly seriously injured. The shooting took place on Route 33 when State Trooper Ryan Seiple pulled over Daniel Clary for what seemed like a minor infraction on November 7, 2017. The traffic stop quickly escalated into a physical confrontation before Clary reached into his car, pulled out a loaded handgun and opened fire.

Northampton County First Deputy District Attorney Terence Houck said he and his troopers wanted to release the footage to raise public awareness of just how dangerous policing can be. Houck pointed out that his troopers exercised great restraint all the way until they were fired upon. "We think the community should see it," Houck said. "It was only with their permission and encouragement that ultimately we decided to release the video."
The dash cam footage shows Trooper Seiple trying to arrest Clary for driving under the influence but he breaks free and is immediately tased. The two troopers wrestle with Clary for about a minute until he breaks free of the troopers, dashes for his driver's side car door, and pulls out a loaded handgun. Clary instantly opens fire on the troopers who are fully exposed on the other side of the car. Clary uses his vehicle as cover and continues to exchange rounds with the troopers before driving away.

Trooper Kelly says he has no memory of the incident and doesn't remember the shooting. Clary was charged with several felonies, including attempting to kill Seiple and Kelly. He is set to be sentenced on August 31.
