Lewes, DE — A disturbing video shows a Delaware State Trooper point his gun at the head of a man over a stop for an alleged speeding ticket. Luckily for the victim, Mack Buckley, he was not shot and decided to film this interaction on video.
Mack Buckley, who is African-American, uploaded the minute-and-23-second video from Feb. 14 to Facebook of the trooper pulling the gun on him when he objected to the officer opening the door and telling him to get out of the vehicle.
“No, no, no. You cannot, you cannot pull me out of this,” Buckley is heard saying to the officer right before the gun is drawn.
Buckley then repeatedly asks: “Why are you pulling a gun on me?”
The officer responds: “Stop reaching for s—. Hands on the car.”
The video has been viewed more than 27,000 times since it was posted.
Buckley told NBC News on Wednesday that he could not speak about the incident until he has consulted with his attorney.
In the Facebook post, Buckley alleges he was pulled over for speeding, ticketed for resisting arrest and issued three traffic citations. He also claims he was not allowed to file a complaint against the officer at the police station after he was released on unsecured bond.
