Caught On Camera: NYPD officer facing suspension for rant at Uber driver

The New York Police Department is investigating a video in which an NYPD detective, out of uniform, goes off on a road rage-like tirade at an Uber driver.

A passenger in the Uber car recorded the incident which has now gone viral.

The officer was allegedly driving an unmarked car with flashing red and blue lights in the windshield.

He supposedly pulled over the driver for honking at him because he didn't use a blinker.


The NYPD has launched an internal investigation. According to reports, the man is assigned to the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force with top secret security clearance.

He's now facing suspension, reassignment and loss of his clearance.

The passenger in the car is set to testify at the Civilian Complaint Review Board.
