Boynton Beach Police can expect to be slapped with a lawsuit after a cop was caught on cell phone video pulling a driver out of a car and another officer threatening to shoot a passenger.

The incident happened in February 2013, but it was just put on YouTube.

It has since gone viral.


WARNING: explicit language

The police chief says the incident was investigated, and because the cops were looking for burglary suspects and these men were combative, the officers' actions were justified.

The attorney for the car's driver has just announced they're going to sue.

They argue the driver's civil rights were violated.
