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.
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.
