Police Arrest Man They Say Drove Into a Cruiser, Private Footage Shows What Really Happened

A police car headed the wrong way down a one-way street, with no lights and sirens on (you see this ALL THE TIME in DC), hit a parked car. The man in the car gets out. Two cops get out of the car then “checked the block for surveillance cameras before arresting him for destruction of city property," the New York Post reports. He was also charged with resisting arrest.

However, they missed one camera: A private surveillance camera owned by one of the man’s neighbors. The charges were dropped but now the man is suing.

The video of what happened is below. Two seconds into the video the police car hits the parked car. At 27 seconds in an officer gets out to check the damage and the man gets out of the vehicle.

I'll update this thread with the full complaint he filed against the police once it is available online.
