COLUMBUS, Ohio - Some in law enforcement said there is a growing trend of people testing them.
Officers said more people are attempting to bait people into violating their rights so they catch it on camera, and in some cases, cash in.
10TV obtained dash camera video from the Beavercreek Police Department. The video shows a man wearing a rifle on his back, admitting to the officer why he is carrying a gun.
The man tells the officer he is going to go to every city and try to get a lawsuit to make some easy money. The officer then asks if he is trying to set officers up. The man answers, “Yeah.”
Here in central Ohio, Grove City Police Captain Jeff Pearson said his officers have experienced similar encounters.
