NC Deputy Flips Out, Grabs Cell Phones Filming Her Arrest of Marine Vet
A North Carolina deputy confiscated two separate cell phones recording her in the midst of confronting a retired Marine combat instructor. A video provided to Photography Is Not a Crime shows the deputy losing her cool and snatching the phones, but the video directly contradicts her claim that she arrested Carlos Jaramillo for acting aggressive.
The deputy showed up to handle a dispute between Jaramillo and a neighbor, asking him for an ID. He provided his Veterans Affairs card, a government-issued form of identification, but she did not accept it. When he questions her on why she won’t take it, she raises her voice, warns him not to act up, and tells him to put the phone down.
Jaramillo refuses, and she shouts, “For my safety, put the phone down!” She grabs the phone and puts handcuffs on him. Jaramillo’s son shows up to record his father being detained, but the deputy takes that phone too. She screams, “I’m snatching everyone’s phone and I will take everyone in!”
Jaramillo’s son records them with another phone, but this one wasn’t confiscated by the deputy. Jaramillo was eventually released on no charges.
