NJ Cop with Violent Past Threatens to Beat Black Men for Recording Traffic Stop
After snatching a phone from a man during a traffic stop and threatening to beat another man in the car for recording, Atlantic City police officer Andrew Jaques tried to ressaure the men that they had nothing to worry about because he was recording everything on his body cam.
But when the media requested to see that video, they were told it did not exist.
What does exist, however, is the 1:17 minute video recorded by 22-year-old Antoine Jones who remained passive and respectful while Jaques barked orders and threats in that roid rage resonance so common in cops.
That video, released this week, is the key piece of evidence in a pending lawsuit against Jaques, who has a long history of losing his temper in traffic stops as well as beating and choking citizens, including his girlfriend.
