Cop Runs Stop Sign, Causes Crash, and Arrests Innocent Driver

The Michigan State Police (MSP) and one of its officers are in hot water after allegedly abusing their authority to frame another driver for an at-fault traffic accident. A security camera aimed at a road intersection in a southwest Detroit neighborhood captured the moment when a pair of alleged and unidentified MSP officers in an unmarked Jeep Patriot ignored a stop sign and unlawfully crossed the intersection. At that time, 27-year-old Carlos Martinez was driving down the one-way street in a red car when the MSP officer-driven vehicle crossed his path. As a result, the two vehicles collided, sending the Jeep spinning onto the sidewalk.
