Girlfriend says man shot in traffic stop wasn't aggressive

CROSSVILLE (WATE) -- The girlfriend of a man shot by a Crossville police officer during a traffic stop says he must have been provoked. Ben Davenport died later in the hospital. But the DA says the cruiser tape shows he attacked officers.

Officers say Davenport was pulled over Thursday on 4th Street behind Cumberland County High School, where he was driving 52 mph in a 30 mph zone.
