Police are allegedly investigating a viral video showing a Houston police officer telling a woman to “pretend like we’re going to shoot you” while ordering 4 people out of a vehicle.
In the video, recorded by Denee Harris, an officer says on a loudspeaker, “Hands up! Put your hands up. Over your head! Pretend like we’re going to shoot you.”
“Why would he say that?” Harris can be heard saying.
According to ABC 13, another officer confiscated one of a passenger’s crutches and threw it on the ground. An officer can also be seen driving the vehicle away from the scene.
Harris later told Storyful News, “I was so scared. I didn’t know how it was going to end.”
Police did not immediately comment on the reason for the traffic stop and detentions.
The Houston Police Department said they are aware of the video and are looking into it.
