Ft. Lauderdale cop arrests man for asking for his badge number

• Photography Is Not a Crime
And in today’s daily contempt-of-cop story, Ft. Lauderdale Police Officer Jeff Overcash did not appreciate a man asking him for his badge number, so he pulled out his handcuffs and arrested him.

And it was all caught on video.

This is nothing new. Back in the early 90s I was assaulted by a Rio Rancho Officer for asking for his information. To cover his butt he charged me with obstructing an officer, not resisting arrest mind you. The department refused to take my complaint of assault even though I had been taken to the hospital, by them, with a mild concussion and numerous cuts and bruises. At trail the judge found me guilty of causing a safety hazard for the officer and fined me $80.00 including court costs. The city DA and the Police Chief went ballistic over the ruling and soon after the judge was quietly retired from the bench. I later learned the judge had been throwing a number of the Police Department's cases out. Nothing has changed much around here in all these years. If you're traveling through New Mexico, stay the heck out of Rio Rancho.
