Cop points gun, sucker punches man filming arrest
The New York cop is now being investigated by Internal Affairs.
It started with a pair of dirt bikes and a Hyundai rolling through Harlem, ABC 7 reports. Two police officers pulled over the car, which had been reported stolen. But police say the bikers created a distraction, allowing the people in the car to escape.
The cops, who belong to the 32nd precinct’s Anti-Crime Squad, chased one of the bikers, 21-year-old Dayshawn Bettway, into an apartment complex lobby.
In video obtained by ABC 7, one of the officers put him in a kimura lock (a jiujitsu move), and screamed at the cameraman to back off. The cop had absolutely no chill, pulling out his gun.
