Philadelphia police have been investigating a viral video of a traffic stop that happened in Philadelphia. You can see in the video three officers approach a vehicle on a side street. One officer was trying to use a nightstick to break the driver-side window to apprehend the suspect. Sources say the driver was in possession of a handgun.
Accusations have came forth that the officer was extremely unprofessional and used racial slurs in his efforts to make an arrest.
