Sgt. Shawn Glans a New York sheriff's deputy has been suspended after a video was posted that showed him verbally abusing, and apparently slapping a young man after the man refused to let Glans search his vehicle. The car had a rifle in the backseat, which is not unlawful and, when the man refuses, Glans is heard threatening that he could "rip your … head off."
The video below shows Glans insisting that "We'll get a (expletive) search warrant" and demanding "Let me see your (expletive) keys." When the man asks why he wants the keys, Glans says "Because we're searching your (expletive) car, that's why." After the slap is heard, Glans is heard saying "You want to (expletive) resist?"
A friend videotaped the encounter. The friend, shown in the incident, tells Glans that what just happened was "intense" and asks the officer if he's going strike him next. The sheriff's sergeant responds that he could "rip your (expletive) head off and piss down your neck." He then says "You like that, huh? I can get a lot more intense."
