California cop suspended for pulling gun on man recording him
A California cop was suspended after a video showing him pulling his gun on a man recording him in a small city north of San Francisco surfaced, the Rohnert Park Police & Fire confirmed.
In a statement posted to its Facebook page, the Rohnert Park Police & Fire confirmed that the unidentified officer was placed on temporary paid administrative leave, and added that the video didn't show a typical interaction between police and the public.
The department wrote, "We have information that individuals from outside the community have voiced an interest in using this event to cause a disturbance, potentially putting our community and citizens at risk."
The video shows the unidentified police officer briefly pointing his gun at Don McComas, who was standing in front of his home. McComas told reporters that the confrontation started when the cop drove by, watching him. He started recording with his camera as the cop drove toward him and parked in the mid of the street.
The officer ordered McComas to take his hand out of his pocket. He responded that he did nothing, but the officer suddenly pulled his on him. The officer held the gun out for around a couple of minutes before leaving. McComas was neither taken into custody nor accused of any wrongdoing.
McComas argued that the officer was trying to intimidate him. The city has brought an outside investigator to look into the confrontation between the officer and McComas.
