Video of a police officer going on a profanity-laced tirade against a man who was only exercising his constitutional rights has gone viral.

The dashboard camera video begins with the officer, who is apparently wearing a microphone, walking back to an SUV after apparently checking his license.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

He tells the driver he is not going to give him a ticket, but that it appears he was arrested a few months prior for marijuana possession. The driver explains he was holding it for a friend.

The cop then calmly asks if he can check his vehicle for drugs. The driver says, "Not without a warrant."

The officer seems okay with that at first, and then suddenly explodes:

"That'll be just f*****g fine, buddy! You know what? You take this s**t and you go back to f*****g Charleston and you don't f*****g come back here okay?!"

The officer yells a few more profanities before getting back in his car and driving away.

The video does not make clear exactly when or where this happened, but there is a Charleston in both South Carolina and West Virginia, so perhaps it happened in one of those states or neighboring states.
