WATCH: After Obscenity-laden Screaming Match with State Trooper, County Cops Disciplined

The volatile exchange, which occurred on I-95 on May 31, was recorded on a state trooper’s dashboard cam and obtained by The Record this week.

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.

Bergen County government is a complete wreck, this is what we get when the republican county executive Donovan puts her own cousin Chief Higgins in the double dipping $195,000 job,,,,,with massive pay to play, sex scandals, and republican freeholder Dinicola calling BCPD for backup,,,, these Bergen republicans have to go.

Regardless of the cops' behavior, not in a million years should ANYONE pull over for a friggin Caravan! How much less professional can police get with these routine stops? How about I slap some flashers on my two-door and use a loudspeaker to order people out of the left lane? The next time it looks like you're being pulled over by something off the used car lot in Paterson, call 911 to make sure the stop is legit.

This is too funny. The police at each others throats. THE STATE TROOPER WAS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT IN EVERYTHING HE DID. STAND YOUR GROUND MR STATE TROOPER. I hope all three of the police officers get suspended. What about the person that was pulled over. LMFAO. Too damn funny.
