Brake checking a cop...
"KEEP RIGHT EXCEPT TO PASS" IS THE LAW IN CERTAIN STATES! While riding the
left lane for no apparent reason this van was approached from behind by a
sheriffs patrol car (clearly marked lights on top, black &white etc.) The
van either didn't see the car at first or decided he wasn't going to pull
to the right (which is the travel lane for those who still cant grasp that
concept) I was becoming more and more amused by this and decided to start
recording with my dash-cam. The cop was not amused so he flashed his lights
to the van several times, started riding the rumble strip and tailgating
(note the weather...) The van driver for whatever reason decides it would
be a good idea to brake-check the cop!!! And so it goes for quite a while
until van guy pulls to the right lane as I'm contemplating going an extra
exit or 2 to follow the unfolding saga...but as the cop starts to pass the
van (I'm in the exit lane already) the most wonderful thing happens...

State Trooper Draws Gun On Undercover Cops, Profanity Laced Argument Ensues
video obtained 8/29/13 really heats up around 6:30
NEW JERSEY - An angry confrontation between a New Jersey State trooper and
local police officers was all caught on camera.
It was an embarrassing verbal slugfest and a turf war between cops.
The anger, the swearing, and a gun pulled from a holster, all played out on
the New Jersey Turnpike in front of two suspects pulled over by a plain
The state trooper who confronts the undercover cop was skeptical about the
That's when the fur flies.
It's all about perception; plainclothes cops were outraged that a fellow
officer, a state trooper, pulled a gun on them.
The trooper claims he was just being cautious.
The result was an ugly confrontation.
The fallout was that two Bergen County Police Officers were disciplined.
The confrontation, first obtained by Cliffviewpilot, begins when a New
Jersey State trooper, Jeremy Mickewicz, unholsters his gun as he approaches
an unmarked police van with police lights that has stopped a car on the
Turnpike in Leonia, New Jersey.
Bergen County Police Officer Robert Douboue sees the gun.
"I want to see your ID," Mickewicz said.
"I'm county police. Don't pull your weapon, brother," Douboue said.
"Shut your *expletive* mouth, I'll do it if I want to," Mickewicz said.
State police say the trooper was responding to a series of carjackings
where robbers posed as undercover officers, but the war of words escalated
over the pulled gun.
"You better have a good reason why you are whipping out your weapon,"
"I do. Armed robbery," Mickewicz said.
At one point, the trooper pushes the cop, and it gets even more heated when
Bergen County Police Sergeant Gabriel Escobar arrives.
"Shut your *expletive* mouth. Get out of my *expletive* face," Escobar
"You don't know what's going on out there. You didn't give me an
*expletive* chance," Mickewicz said.
"You pulled an *expletive* gun on me, you scumbag. If you weren't in
uniform, I'd wipe the street with you," Douboue said.
All of this happened, as two suspects pulled over by the Bergen County
Police Officer sat in their car.
"You pulled a *expletive* gun on me, you are the *expletive* police, you
scumbag. You have my ID. If I pulled my gun on you, how would you feel, if
I pulled my gun on you, how would you feel?" Douboue said.
"I've tried to explain this to you. We've had a rash of them the past
month, a rash of three of police impersonators," Mickewicz said.
"Arrest the police impersonators, so don't come out here *expletive*
rocking a *expletive* uniform pretending that you are better than anyone,"
The Superintendent of the State police said he stands firmly behind the
actions of the trooper.
The Chief of the Bergen County Police made a comment about his officers.
"I think they could have handled it differently," Chief Brian Higgins, of
the Bergen County Police said, "I understand they were angry, to have a gun
pulled out at you by a fellow officer. The actions of our officers and the
words they used are not part of our procedure, but they're human, it's been
addressed, I can tell you that."
