The traffic stop looks ordinary enough. Miami Police Officer Marcel Jackson pulls over a silver Chevy for speeding and walks up to the driver's window. And when the driver leaps from his car, Jackson reacts like any other cop: He throws the driver to the ground and tries to cuff him. Unfortunately for Jackson, the driver apparently wasn't just anyone: He was a lieutenant on the same force.
That's according to Al Crespo, who obtained video of the conflict. A Miami PD spokesman declined to comment on the video to Riptide but confirmed that an internal affairs case has been opened because of the footage.
