Florida Police Jail Banana Man & Others Over 'Harlem Shake' Video, Confiscate Cameras (InformationLiberation)
Tuesday March 12th, 2013
CBS Miami reports some Hialeah, Florida citizens who organized a "Harlem Shake" video got shaken down by Hialeah police for trying to pull off the stunt. The police reportedly aggressively confiscated their cameras and physically kicked one of the organizers in the head after tackling him to the ground.
After a night in jail for "trespassing" and "resisting arrest," their case finally went before a judge. The judge reportedly laughed the case out of court and dropped all charges against the men. Unfortunately, they now have permanent arrest records, and the "banana man" who was in training to be a police officer was kicked out of the police academy.
The cell phone video of the incident is still in police's hands and has yet to be released.
