After this tyrant cop pleaded guilty to assaulting an innocent woman this week, the body camera footage was released detailing the level of abuse.
Las Vegas, NV — Former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) officer Richard Scavone pleaded guilty this week in federal court to assaulting a handcuffed woman in his custody. After the plea, authorities released the body camera footage of the assault. It is nothing short of infuriating and shows the level of violence a woman-abusing cop was willing to take to assert his authority.
Scavone now faces up to a year behind bars and a $100,000 fine on one count of deprivation of rights under color of law in connection with the encounter.
The encounter happened in January of 2015 after this abusive cop thought he had nabbed himself a prostitute.
The woman had done nothing wrong and was walking down the sidewalk drinking a coffee when Scavone attacked her for no reason. She was entirely compliant during the stop even though this sadistic predator kept abusing her.
"The hell you think you're talking to?" he asks her in the video as he threatens her life.
After a brief radio call, this monster then asks his victim, "What else do you want me to do, tough guy?"
"Go ahead and take me to jail. That's all I want you to do," she replies, knowing that at any moment this maniac could kill her and jail is her only refuge.
"You got it," he says, as he then puts his hand inside her bra and pulls out her personal belongings and sexually assaulting her in the process.
The woman was then arrested on false charges of littering. Once the truth came out, however, those charges were dropped.
