Continuing the trend of “don’t be an ass and you don’t have to be embarrassed if you get taped” here’s a video on YouTube from Baltimore. In it, Officer Rivieri (he identifies himself at 1:55) gets indignant with a skateboard, apparently assaults him and takes his property, then continues to berate him some more before intimidating the kid taking the video into turning off his recording.
I suppose it’s possible he subsequently returns the board or arrests the kid and puts it into evidence, but we can’t tell from here. All we can be certain is that he embarrasses himself and ahem Charm City by being such a bully and jerk.
