A video that went viral on social media over the last 12 hours was accompanied by the following, written by the protagonist, who was driving in Brooklyn, NY, when he was pulled over by an NYPD officer and given three tickets.
The text has been edited slightly for easier reading:
“A cop pulled me over and said that I was pulled over for following a grey Honda too closely in the right lane and flashing my headlights at him, followed by a sudden lane change to the left lane.
“The cop held me for 15 minutes and then gave me three violations: 1) unsafe lane change, 2) speeding, and 3) following too closely.
“See the video below from my dash cam. You can see that I was in the same lane the entire time without flashing anyone or tailgating.
“The officer’s ID is 938857 and he is from the 72nd precinct. Please let’s stop the corruption and get this cop off the street.”
