In-Car Video Exonerates Officer
Nothing happens in this video. It’s almost a waste of your time to watch it. If you do choose to watch, you will witness Officer Daniel Caffrey, a 12-year veteran of the Pequannock Police Department, going out of his way to be nice after pulling someone over for driving straight through a stop sign. This boring video, however, became crucial evidence when the driver came to the police station and accused Officer Caffrey of drawing his weapon and threatening her.
“This is one of those cases where it’s: thank God for the video,” DePuyt said, saying [she] made her report “purely out of revenge.”
A similar situation occurred last year, also in New Jersey, where a young man accused officers of harassment and posted a video to YouTube that went viral. This incident was also able to be proven false from the dash cam video. Learn more about that incident here.
