Watch Furious NYPD Detective’s Ugly Tirade Against Uber Driver
What is going on with angry cops?
Video has surfaced of a New York City Police Department detective berating an Uber driver. The NYPD has confirmed the man is with the Intelligence Division.
The confrontation (with NSFW language) began after the Uber driver allegedly honked the detective, riding in a Hyundai, for not using a signal.
Shortly after the detective pulls over the driver and starts the vicious verbal attack in which he also mocks the driver's accent, he walks away, at which point the passenger in the Uber vehicle tells the driver the encounter is being recorded.
The detective comes back and continues the brutal lecture, shouting at the man and yelling at him for interrupting:
People are allowed to park their cars on the side of the street without your interference, and then your opinion about what’s going on, OK? Especially when the person you’re doing it to are the police."
The NYPD is now investigating the matter. Mayor Bill de Blasio also chastised the detective's behavior. "There’s just no place for any public servant to use discriminatory or negative language," he said.
