A police officer is being investigated after a video emerged of him pulling a gun on a man recording him from a cellphone.

The footage shows a Rohnert Park public safety officer driving toward Don McComas and stopping outside his home as he is filming.

The officer looks like he jokingly starts to film him back before getting out of the police vehicle and telling McComas to take his hand out of his pocket.

UPDATE:

The LA Times reports the officer has been put on leave. He should be offered an early retirement.

Some say “Hey, he had his hands in his pocket… .” That’s not any excuse.  If I’m standing at the end of my drive next to the road, cell-phone in hand and my other hand in pocket, and LE drives by, I expect a friendly nod.  Not, “Hey, you some crazy constitutionalist or somethin?” at the barrel of a gun.

    But I’d be there is more to the story. I’d really like to see the entire video before passing judgement here….
