The video shows the officer violently coercing a man into waiving his Fourth Amendment rights, striking him and shouting, “You wanna f*ckin resist?” when the man refused to consent to a search.
He asked the officer, “You gonna slap me around?”
The officer responded, “Yeah. I’ll rip your f*ckin head off and sh*t down your throat.”
The Saratoga police issued a statement saying no charges have been filed against the officer for the “inappropriate interaction.”
According to the YouTube video post, the officer has been identified as “Saratoga County Sheriff Shawn R. Glans,” who demanded an “unwarranted search of Colin Fitch’s vehicle.”
