Once again, a New York City police officer was exposed as a liar by surveillance video.

This time, it was an undercover NYPD named Winston McDonald, a 2012 "Cop of the Month" recipient, who claimed four men tried to mug him at knifepoint outside a Brooklyn hardware store last month.

The suspects, however, claim the cop approached them inside a hardware store, flashing money, looking to buy drugs.

One of the men, Peterson Duplan, recognized McDonald as a cop who had arrested years ago.

"Get the fuck out of here," Duplan told him, according to the New York Daily News.

More words were exchanged before Duplan and his three friends walked out of the hardware store.

McDonald then followed them out, walking closely behind.

The video shows they all walk down the block, out of frame, where they were eventually arrested.

The way McDonald described it, he was held up at knifepoint directly outside the hardware.

He even testified that Duplan walked up with a switchblade knife and said, "give me your money or I will stab you," according to Gothamist.

He said the other men surrounded him, telling him, "we are going to fuck you up."

He also said a crowd of people gathered, a detail cops love to add to reports, thinking it adds to the drama.

But the video shows there was no crowd of people. And that no confrontation took place outside the store.

In fact, no switchblade knife was ever recovered.
