Authorities said the trooper had stopped his patrol SUV with his lights activated behind a disabled vehicle on Interstate 75 in Fort Myers.
FHP officials released dash-cam video from a November incident in which a auto is seen slamming into the back of a trooper's vehicle while they were assisting a driver.
