The veteran officer in this video lost his cool in such epic fashion, the viral footage has sparked an internal investigation into his confrontation with the man filming him.
Miami Beach police Officer Kenneth MacLeod was about to send motorist Albert Valdes on his way after a routine traffic stop when a simple salutation had the officer coming unglued.
“God bless you,” Valdes said.
For some reason, that prompted MacLeod to return with a stream of obscenities, calling the motorist a “f*cking little wise-ass 20-year-old punk” and threatening him with jail time.
All the while, Valdes exhibited enviable calm.
It’s must-see video that Valdes posted on YouTube and called, “Cop loses it when I say ‘God Bless You’.”
No word yet on whether the blessed officer will suffer any consequences over his explosive display. Miami Beach Police Detective Vivian Thayer said the investigation, launched after the video went viral, is ongoing.
