Former State Trooper Indicted

A former state trooper has been indicted by a Wake County grand jury on charges of felonious restraint.

Larry Lovick resigned last summer amid an investigation by the Highway Patrol.

The indictment says on May 25th Trooper Lovick restrained a woman without her consent after a traffic stop on Trailwood Drive in Raleigh.

WTVD reports that the woman's family told them that the trooper placed her in his unmarked patrol car and exposed himself.

Lovick was assigned to the Highway Patrol in Wake County.

    TO: JIM BOB,DARE Co. Utilize their chain of command first (Line Sgt.,1st. Sgt., then Troop Commander which is Troop A, Greenville) which Dare Co. is a part of.Nothing invokes pure horror/fear than a Trooper called on the carpet in front of the "old man" at the District office. You couldn't drive a straight pin up your rearend with a sledge hammer (ESPECIALLY when a woman is involved!) A pissed off wife of a Trooper used to be a sure death sentance.

    Guys, I'll speak from experience that some LEO's are in it for the power trip but others feel like it's a life calling. I will say this that all are human. Sadly as a society we have gotten away from caring about each other. In my day if a LEO stopped you they were respectful. But the thugs make them in fear for there life now. The real problem is the way we raise our kids. The government wants to lock us up for a good old fashioned whipping of our kids so they think they can commit any crime they want. Sadly some of the LEO's grew up the same way. I personally know on State Trooper that is a great young man but he was raised right without intervention. I wish I could say his name here but folks rest assured he patrols this area and is a tribute of everything the LEO's stand for.

    I have respect for all law enforcement officers. That's a job that I don't want. I'am just glad that someone wants to do it. Not sure what this trooper did but everyone should have respect for everyones privacy in this issue. He has a family and we need to remember them when putting stuff in the news. I am sorry for the victim also. No one wins

    Not commenting on innocence or guilt, but aren't most people restrained by the cops without consent?

    He happens to resemble a Dare County Police Officer, But anyways, It is true what they say about the whole power trip thing,in most cases I see that with the rookies, or even with the younger officers. I have alot of respect for some of the officers that work on the beach, because, they know what is serious, and what is not so serious, to sit their and take up a citizens time. I've seen alot of the rookies fishing for people to pullover, waiting to inconvenience the next person. I know some of the officers from working locally here,it's the rookies that want a dang cookie!! They need to seek advice from some of the senior officers,and be respectful, or else their own colleges won't respect them!!!!! I've actually heard some of the seniors talk about how reckless the new comers are,or as they say "beasts", and I agree!

    Maybe he saved some of his gear. He could now start stripping for woman at bachelorette parties and probably make more money than he did as a Trooper.

    TO ANONYMOUS @ 10:09am... No I am not special and I have never once said that I was. It's not like I am stopped everyday. I hardly ever get stopped because I do consider myself a safe driver. I was simply stating that I have the upmost respect for our officers and they have always treated me with the same respect back.
