CLEVELAND – Fired Cleveland Police Officer Brian Sabolik says he is still in shock that he was let go due to his actions in the November 29, 2012 chase and shooting.
“It’s like a bad dream and I keep thinking I am going to wake up and it will be back to normal,” Sabolik told Fox 8 during an interview Tuesday.
Sabolik said it was always his dream to become a police officer, just like his great uncle.
“It’s all I wanted to do, it’s all I ever wanted to do,” Sabolik said.
His dream came true in 2012. A few months later he and several other officers were involved in a police chase and shooting that changed his life. On November 29, 2012 a chase started in downtown Cleveland and ended in East Cleveland, when two suspects were killed after 13 officers fired 137 shots.
Sabolik , still a rookie, fired four of those shots. “I thought I was going to die,” Sabolik said. “I was never so scared in my entire life.”
