  • Georgia cops caught on bodycam ‘flipping coin to decide arrest

"You think driving that fast on a wet road is a smart idea just because you're late to work?" the officer adds. There wasn't any assault involved, and no one was injured.

Pretty shocking video here of 2 Georgia cops giggling while using a coin flip app to determine if they should arrest a speeding motorist - and the recorded incident got both officers suspended.

The cops made a decision to flip a coin to decide it: heads, arrest; tails, release. Officer Brown agrees and laughs. They're even corrupt when it comes to their own probability tests.

Brown responded that she didn't have speed detection. What she didn't realize at the time, was the officers chose to flip a coin to decide whether to arrest her or let her go.

The other officer identified as Kristee Wilson then opens up a coin-flipping app on the on-board computer.

"Yeah", said Brown. "So released". Wilson is heard saying "23', the code for arrest".

Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said a department source told him about the incident right before the Fourth of July.




Webb sobs as Brown leads her to a patrol auto, where at least four police vehicles and multiple officers had arrived to back up the arrest that was created out of subverted chance.

According to the police report filed by Brown, Webb was driving around 85 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone. "I am sharing my daughter, Sarah Ashley Webb experience", she wrote online.

All of Webb's charges were dropped after prosecutors watched the body camera footage and reportedly "refused" to prosecute the case. He said he couldn't discuss details as the investigation is ongoing.

"I have much higher expectations of our police officers and I am appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision-making process of something as important as the arrest of a person", he said.

She said she's still contemplating whether or not to seek legal action after the coin toss that tossed her into jail and into the public limelight.

'I would like to see them fired, because they shouldn't have been playing with my freedom on a flip of a coin, ' she said.
