Oklahoma state cops pulled over an ambulance transporting a patient to the hospital:
“As my partner was pulling onto the shoulder, the cruiser came alongside our unit and gestured for my driver to pull over,” [EMT Maurice] White says. “When the officer came to a complete stop behind the ambulance, I noticed a woman in the front seat. Based on the officer’s erratic driving behavior, I thought that the woman in the front seat of the cruiser was in need of immediate medical attention; hence I exited the rear of the ambulance in order to assess the situation.”
White says the officer was in a rage when he approached them and yelled “get your a– back here! I am giving you a ticket for failure to yield.” White says he told the trooper they had a patient in the ambulance and that they were on their way to the hospital.
“He ignored my statement, became even more belligerent, and demanded my partner come to his patrol car so he could write him a ticket,” White says.
The whole incident was filmed with a cell phone:
Murdoc’s guess is that we’ll be seeing more “you can’t videotape the police” comments from certain corners.
I’m still a bit fuzzy on how this all started. It looks like the troopers must have been in pursuit of someone, but I don’t know who or what happened with the target while these guys were wasting time with the ambulance. I guess I hope that some other cars were still after the original target. (via Uncle)
