“I don’t care if you’re the president of the United States.” Video of the arrest of Oklahoma Police Capt

A police sergeant in the US state of Oklahoma refused repeated requests from a captain in the same unit to turn off a camera hanging from his uniform, and was eventually arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

Video footage posted on social media showed James Matthew French, 55, almost begging Sergeant Christopher Skinner to turn off the camera and speak to him in private.

In the video, French says, “I’m asking you, I’m a police captain in Oklahoma City,” to which Skinner responds, “I know you know the suit’s camera policies, and you know I can’t turn around. Stop it.”

Asked again, Skinner replied, “I understand that, sir, and I’m a sergeant in the same department, and I’m sworn to enforce the law. I don’t take advantage of anybody, I do. I don’t care if you’re in a gang or if you’re the president of the United States.”

When French turned off the camera and asked him to turn it back on after speaking privately with the sergeant, Skinner told him he would do so after the investigation.

After a police sergeant gave French a check, he was arrested for drunken driving.

Oklahoma police said the captain is on administrative leave pending investigations.

The crash occurred shortly after 1:30 a.m. on March 12th after Skinner saw a sports car swerve and change lanes without signaling, the network says.CNN“.
