Police cars are often used as surveillance cameras, but a new film has captured one officer on a video telling another that he was about to arrest someone.
The video, which was filmed by an anonymous citizen, shows the officer instructing a man to “get on the ground”.
“Put your hands on the sidewalk,” the officer says.
“He looks at me and he says, ‘I can see you on your phone, I can see your phone.'”
“And he says that to another officer, ‘If I arrest you, you’re going to get hit.
That’s the last thing I’m going to do.'”
The man is taken into custody and the man was arrested later that day.
The incident was captured on video by a citizen who wanted to be identified, and was shared on YouTube.
In a statement, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said:”On August 24, 2016, officers from the Orlando Police Department received a 911 call from a citizen about a man who was on the street with a weapon.
The officer requested that the citizen surrender the weapon.
A short time later, the citizen surrendered his weapon to the officer.
The department will continue to review the matter and any additional information provided by the citizen, who has waived his right to anonymity.””
The officer involved was placed on administrative leave and placed on desk duty pending the outcome of the internal affairs investigation.
The department will continue to review the matter and any additional information provided by the citizen, who has waived his right to anonymity.”
The video has received over three million views on YouTube, according to its Facebook page.
