A police officer in New York City was on the job Monday morning when he received a phone call about a shooting.
When the officer answered the phone, he found himself in a room with four detectives and a detective sergeant, all armed with rifles.
They began questioning him about his experience with the NYPD, how long he’d been with the department, and whether he’d had any contact with the suspects.
He then asked to see a file of all the weapons he’d seen during his time with the force.
He was shocked when he learned there was a file with just two guns, a BB gun and a shotgun.
He also learned the officer, whose name he’s withheld, has no disciplinary history with the police department.
But he had to read the police report, which is a summary of the police officers encounters with the accused criminals.
As he read, the detective sergeant looked at him and said, “You’re telling me I can’t look at that?”
“That’s right,” the officer said.
“Well, I’ve never seen any of that before,” the detective responded.
“Oh my God,” the cop said, laughing.
He then read the entire file, including all the encounters.
“I mean, it’s just… it’s unbelievable,” the man said.
“What a joke.”
“It’s a joke that’s been going around,” the sergeant said.
The man then left the room and called the cops again.
He was told that the detectives would meet with him later that day, but that he would have to wait until the next day.
He has a history with police.
In 2015, he was arrested on charges that he assaulted a homeless man in the Bronx.
He had a prior arrest in 2005 for assault.
