NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers is now calling on the NYPD to fire a detective who was caught on video berating an Uber driver.
A passenger in the Uber cab recorded the traffic stop on the West Side Highway near 14th Street Monday afternoon and posted it to YouTube.
“Stop it with your mouth. Stop it with your: ‘For what sir, for what sir.’ Stop it with that bulls**t, and realize there are three vehicle traffic law violations that you committed, OK?” the detective says. “Do you understand me? I don’t know what f***ing planet you think you’re on right now.”
