Dashcam Video Clears New Jersey Officer of Wrongdoing During Traffic Stop

VIDEO: Dashcam Video Clears New Jersey Officer of Wrongdoing During Traffic Stop

Around 10:30 p.m. on Sept. 13, North Brunswick, N.J., police officer Richard De La Cruz pulled over a car driven by Leonard Cephas for a rolling violation, specifically blowing a stop sign.

During the traffic stop, officers broke out the passenger side window of Cephas' car and pulled him physically from the vehicle. Cephas contacted local and national media and, because this was shortly after the shooting of Michael Brown, the media pounced on the story.

The reporters contacted both Cephas and the North Brunswick PD.

Cephas recorded his encounter with De La Cruz and other officers.

So did De La Cruz.

The officer's squad car had recently been outfitted with a WatchGuard Video system that started recording when the officer activated the car's emergency lights to pull over Cephas.

The official video shows Officer De La Cruz dealing with an uncooperative Cephas who will not roll down the windows of his car and has locked himself in the vehicle.

Other officers arrived to back up De La Cruz who repeatedly warned Cephas that, if he didn't roll down the window, the officers would break the window and arrest him. Cephas refused to roll down the window. Officers broke the window, pulled him out, proned him out on the ground, and arrested him.

After watching the official video, the reporters decided Cephas' claim of police brutality did not hold up.

"The video in this incident saved a lot of headaches for the department as well as Officer De La Cruz," says Capt. Brian Hoiberg of the North Brunswick PD.

Cephas was charged with driving under the influence and resisting arrest. Marijuana was reportedly found in his car.

I'll bet the media was disappointed in how this turned out.

Where are the charges for filing a false report, the lawsuit against this dirt merchant for slander.... Etc.....

Deputy Ken @ 12/20/2014 10:15 AM

Imagine that, a bad guy lied about the police officers conduct after he got himself arrested. That never happens, I'm shocked,,,,,,,,,Not. I bet the liberal lapdog media never printed a retraction.

Good for the officer, he showed restraint and tolerance, and was still able to accomplish his job by arresting the driver. Good job to all. But I have to say this was also a shameless plug for the in-car camera system. Hopefully the officers were compensated.
