In a surprising turn of events, a video is going viral on youtube allegedly showing a cop throwing a white plastic bag in the car during what seems like a routine traffic stop.
The person who recorded the video and the driver of the car is going by the name GlockBoy Savoo. Mr. Savoo is a musician currently working under a label called TrechKids.
He posted this video on social media which he recorded during a routine traffic stop.
Mr. Savoo writes, “First time ever seeing a cop try to throw sum on me just to get reason to search the car???? he ain’t even know I was recording ???? you can tell he was nervous ????.”
In the video recorded by Mr. Savoo and the cop’s bodycam video which has now been released, you could clearly see the cop throwing what appears to be a white plastic bag when approaching Mr. Savoo’s car from behind.
The cop in this video has been identified as an officer working for the Caledonia PD in Wisconsin. When Mr. Savoo sees the Caledonia PD officer throwing the white bag, which appears to be a drug bag, he confronts the officer. However when confronted the cop first plays dumb, pretending that nothing happened. But when Mr. Savoo turns around and shows what he has actually done and says that he (the Caledonia PD officer) is on camera, he starts explaining the situation.
The Chief of Police of Caledonia PD, Christopher Botsch has come out with a statement. He says, this … “Please keep in mind that the cell phone video that is circulating depicts only a small portion of the entire encounter; whereas, all available video may provide more context.” He adds, “The Caledonia Police Department believes strongly in transparency; therefore, all body-worn camera video will be made available within the coming days.
Mr. Botsch confirms that this is an ongoing investigation and they are examining all the evidence including both the video recorded by Mr. Savoo and the body-worn camera video of the Caledonia PD officer involved in this incident.
