A video uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, by a user named Bodhi Sattva, captured a very troubling scene that transpired on November 6, 2014. The footage captured an enraged officer refusing to tell the driver why he was being placed under arrest, verbally abusing him, and ultimately smashing the man’s window and yanking him from the vehicle.
The video begins with the officer already at the window for a traffic stop. Seconds into the video the officer begins to get aggressive with the driver by banging on the car and calling him a moron.
“I asked him several times why I was being pulled over, he would not tell my why and before I knew it, he was pulling out his baton, threatening and intimidating me to get out or he was going to smash my window. He did this without telling me why he pulled me over,” Sattva wrote.
The driver asks why he has been pulled over, and the officer begins to demand that he open the door to the vehicle. A back and forth ensues between the driver, who is simply asking why he is under arrest, and the officer who refuses to answer while demanding the man step out of the vehicle. Eventually the officer claims to smell marijuana, which a second officer confirms.
