I don't know, hard call to me. If someone is in the car pregnant or injured it is obvious your story is true.
If the officer is suppose to not detain everyone who is claiming to be headed to the hospital for a dying relative that is the story I am using everytime!
The story talks about Moats not using his identity as a NFL football player to get any special treatment but i think if this was you or I it wouldn't even make it to the papers.
You also telling me that when people start pouring out of a car after you stop them that any cop wouldn't pull their weapon?

Personally I think it is a hard call and the officer lost on this one.

I will add however that his dialogue itself sucks. Much of the things he said shouldn't have been said no matter what the conditions.

Yeah tough call, but obviously the wrong one in this case.


Right up the 1 hole.

there are some really dumb cops out there. this is the problem, cops are robots, they don't think. The department should be sued and the officer fired for being a dumb ass.

Saw this on the news last night... It's the officer's job to use discretion. If a car is speeding through stop signs and lights and ends up stoping at the ER of a hospital, you need to assume that there is good reason for it. Sure, give them a ticket but let them get to the hospital first. The video just shows that the officer is being a complete douche.

Sounds like his department has already hung him out to dry... Rightfully so IMO.

"I can screw you over." "I can make your life very difficult" from the video... priceless.

if they were on the road, then sure, it's a judgement call, but they were in the parking lot of the ER, totally unexcusable

The dept seems to be handling to situation and it looks like he might get fired. Unfortunate situation, but it's being taking care of. Time to move on.

I can't figure out why cops do and say dumb things like this when they know they are being recorded by their own cruiser camera.

It kinda slows down at the end... a nurse ends up coming out and telling the cop that "She is literally dying right now", and he still takes his time and gives him a lecture at the end before letting him go after ticketing him.

The fact he said some of that crap tells me he is just on a power trip. Hate to say it, but if he gets canned its the right thing to do. To make matters worse he brings up something from Jan too? Good job guy.

The dude's mother in law is dieing and the cop is saying this: (so sad)

Excerpts from Officer Robert Powell and Ryan Moats:

Moats: You really want to go through this right now? My mother-in-law is dying. Right now! ... I got seconds before she's dying, man!
Powell (Cop): If my mom was dying I'd probably be a little upset too, but when I saw flashing red and blues, I would stop.
Moats: Did I not stop at the red light?
Powell: You stopped, then you drove through the red light.
Moats: I stopped, I checked the traffic, I waved the traffic off, then I turned.
Powell: This is not an emergency vehicle. You do not have the right to control the traffic.
Moats: OK. All right ... just go ahead and check my insurance so I can go ahead and go. If you're gonna give me a ticket, give me a ticket. I really don't care, just ...
Powell: Your attitude says that you need one.
Moats: I don't have an attitude. All I'm asking you is just to hurry up. Cause you're standing here talking to me...
Powell: Shut your mouth and listen.
Moats: Shut my mouth? Is that how you talk to me, too?
Powell: Shut your mouth and listen. If you want to keep this going, I'll just put you in handcuffs, and I'll take you to jail for running a red light.
Moats: OK. All right.
Powell: I can do that.
Moats: OK.
Powell: State law says I can.
Moats: Yes, sir. Go ahead.
Powell: If you don't settle down that's what I'm gonna do.
Moats: Yes, sir.
Powell: All right, If you don't settle down, your truck's illegally parked – I'll tow that as well.
Moats: Yes, sir.
Powell: OK, I can screw you over. I'd rather not do that. Your attitude will dictate everything that happens, and right now, your attitude sucks.
Moats: Yes, sir.
Powell: OK, I turned my red and blues on as you were going over the bridge ...
Moats: You think I'm gonna stop when my wife's mother is dying?
Powell: You are required to stop. What you're doing does not matter. Red and blues, you have to stop. I can charge you with fleeing right now.
Moats: Yes, sir. ...
Powell: I can take you to jail. I can tow your truck. I can charge you with fleeing.
Moats: Yes, sir, you can. I understand.
Powell: I can make your night very difficult.
Moats: I hope you'll be a great person and not do that.
