A pair of Bergen County Police officers were reprimanded by county officials following a serious shouting match on I-95 near Leonia earlier this year, according to a report.
The incident, which occurred on May 31, was recorded on a state trooper’s dashboard cam and obtained by The Record this week.
The video, above, shows the volatile confrontation between a county officer and his supervisor and the trooper on the shoulder of I-95. Obscenity-laden tirades appear to be issued back and forth between both sides and at one point the trooper removes his gun from his holster.
"You pulled your [expletive] gun on me," one of the men involved in the confrontation says at around the 7:55 mark.
State cops were on high alert because of at least two reports over the last two weeks of armed criminals masquerading as police officers carjacking motorists on the New Jersey Turnpike, according to The Record.
The names of the officers, as well as the disciplinary actions taken by County Executive Kathleen Donovan, were not disclosed.
State Police officials, however, defended their force’s actions.
“[O]ur trooper was fully justified in approaching this stop with the utmost caution,” Col. Rick Fuentes told The Record.
