When a power-tripping little napoleon of a cop goes all belligerent on an innocent Joe Citizen and gets caught on tape, it's news. The far more common occurrence of a drunken Joe Citizen pouring himself out of his vehicle and getting all belligerent with a long-suffering peace officer, however, is so common it hardly rates mention.
Unless the Joe Citizen in question happens to be State Rep. Joe Citizen (D-Nashville). In that case the video is news. How is Mr. Briley going to live down being such a big baby for the camera? I hope he looks good in orange.
