What should an officer do if he’s already stepped over the line?
"A cop's daughter is not someone you mess around with. You're stupid," the officer tells the boy in the video. The faces of the cop and the boy are both blurred in the footage.
The boy’s parents are considering pressing charges, saying the officer abused his authority. The boy says he wants the officer put in jail.
The cop’s lawyer, Terry Bowman, has a different story.
“On this occasion, the officer was not there as part of an official investigation, but as a concerned parent, attempting to navigate the difficult challenges associated with raising a teenager,” he said in a statement.
He added that the boy’s mother reached out to him for guidance in the past, according to CNN.
The district attorney is also reviewing the situation.
Here is the videotape the boy handed over to the San Jose Mercury News.
