NOTICE OF COMPLAINT March 11, 2022 ICMS #: 2022-0172 On March 10, 2022 the OPO received an online complaint. The complainant alleges: A police motorcycle came out of nowhere (dangerously) and he parked in parallel to the road completely blocking one lane in (looked like he was escorting some king of film). I was driving fast (But within the speed limit) and he started making signals that I interpreted as slow down, he was waiving a stop signal with his hand, not on a firm stop position. So I kept going and on the next traffic stop he came to my window and started screaming as a PSYCHO even spitting on the window, that I should have stopped to his weird signals. I told him that I was sorry but there was no need to yell like that, it was a mistake and he kept going. All of this in front of my wife, who was super scared. At the end we went our own ways but the way he was screaming with such a bully attitude was hard to believe. I have never been yelled at like that with no consequences in my life, nevertheless we went our own ways and things didn’t escalate. I didn’t get his name but his last name is and we was riding a motorcycle. This notice of complaint is a request for Internal Affairs to initiate an investigation to determine if the employee conduct is within compliance of APD policy, Civil Service Rules, and Municipal Civil Service Rules.
