A 20 year old St. Louis, Missouri resident, Brett Darrow, has turned the tables on a St. George police sergeant by video-taping their encounter using a dashboard camera. As a result, Sgt. James Kuehnlein, has been placed on unpaid suspension.
Darrow was encouraged to install the camera after previous encounters with the police. The video, which has been posted on YouTube, clearly shows the abuses of the police officer, who threaten to "invent" charges against the Darrow.
The police became aware of both the video and their officer's conduct after receiving numerous protest calls from viewers of the video. The police chief admits that "officer's actions and tone were inappropriate."
