Lebanon Junction, KY — A video recently uploaded by the Oath Accountability Project (OAP) appears to show a Lebanon Junction police officer arrest a man for simply asking for his name and badge number along with the name and badge number of his supervisor and noting how this cop was abusing his power.
The video begins with an unidentified man (we believe may go by "Avery") and woman at a Lebanon Junction, KY Pilot gas station. After the motorist asks the police officer for permission to stand under the awning, he tells his female friend:
Police in this town, in this state, in this city, have nothing better to do than to rouse people for nothing…play the bully role because they wear badges.
A Lebanon Junction officer returns to speak to the couple. His badge states his name as Officer Hodges. The officer tells the man he's, "free to go," but the citizen wanted to apparently hold the officer accountable for his actions and asks for his badge number as well as the name of his supervisor. "This is going to go online so people can see truth and consequences, how you guys push your weight around," the man says.
