Wow I'm a petite female and when I got pulled over and asked to step out to be arrested for a warrant I did and I was nice and did everything they asked. on my record it says I didn't resist arrest they document how the traffic stop goes. So just comply. It sucks but it's not the end of the world.

---"Filipiak has been employed with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office for 21 years. " ---"Brian Filipiak, 47, is still employed by the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office, but "he is no longer a lieutenant, holds no command responsibility, and is no longer a sworn law enforcement officer,"" ---"Filipiak was found to have a blood-alcohol level of 0.28 and 0.27 percent - more than three times the legal limit for driving" ---"Filipiak was placed on unpaid administrative leave during the internal investigation and is now employed on a conditional basis working in a support capacity at reduced compensation, according to the department." --- this is the disgusting part---"Filipiak is now being compensated at the level of a deputy....deputies were paid between $41,903.88 and $62,917.78" After all this still living off tax payers dollar.

Super professional cops. Never a harsh word, never backed down. Very patient, and (even though the jerk didn't deserve it) kind and courteous. With +21 years in, this guy should just chuck in the paperwork, take his 20 and boogie. Only thing is, he'll probably do this again...and next time it could be you or I who would get in his way and pay the ultimate price. His pension should be dependent and conditional upon his going into treatment, loss of license and having an impairment detection device permanently affixed to his vehicle or any vehicle he may be driving. He won't learn the lesson till he kills someone. I don't want that someone to be me.

Anyone can make the mistake of drunk driving, point of it is if he had of simply took the sobriety test and cooperated with the law they might not have arrested him. Or the judge might have cut him some slack for being a lt.

My friend's beautiful college-aged son was killed by a drunk driver. Cops and teachers deserve so MUCH more money and support. People are assholes and cops have to deal with them--many are wonderful nice folks and their jobs are MASSIVELY stressful. Love you wonderful guys and gals who serve us. And I'm a hardcore liberal Democrat.

First and foremost for me as an individual, former Bass guitarist for a legendary Southern rock band, & as an alcoholic/addict in recovery... what I see and hear pertaining to this video is 100% proof, although in just one area of work, but proof that addiction does NOT discriminate!! And I have been witness to so many others from clergymen to Dr's, professors, teachers, and everything in between fall from Grace so to speak, become prey to the disease of addiction and yes, had the shoe been on the other foot, the person would've immediately and with force been dragged out of the vehicle, searched, handcuffed, and placed in the back of the patrol car with no air conditioning or heat weather pending in SOME cases, and with the window shut so the officers couldn't hear a peep or even want to and damn sure would never have had an opportunity to say the words "no" or "just listen" twice let alone the 100 times or more that this Lieutenant, mind you, was allowed to repeat from his mouth. I stand up for those who suffer from this disease because I've been in handcuffs on more than one occasion (strangely enough never from a D.U.I.) but been there and taken to the closest county sheriff's sub station or lockup and never again spoken to by the particular officer that arrested me, which brings me to my issue with this. There are so, so many men, women, & children that suffer from the disease and the number rises every second of every day with nothing else done but arrested again the next time. This saddens me as society has changed so much and political correctness, transgender restrooms, gay & lesbian marriage and so many "other" rights and assistance has become priority which, please don't misunderstand me, is all good and dandy as I'm happy for all of you who have stood up for your rights and way of life even if my fight is not the same as yours but rather, mine is about preservation of lives that cause more deaths per second each day around the world than murder does and that strikes me as quite odd that society basically places the addicts sick and suffering & that are lucky enough to survive this disease are put into the "swept under the rug" category. This troubles me and I'm beyond grateful that, just for today, I am clean another day. Once more as a glimpse in my background, I am on the verge of 50 yrs old, the son of a Sgt. in the K-9 unit of the Washington D.C. police Dept for a father and a stay at home mother...both of whom never drank, smoked (even cigarettes), and rarely even cussed, I was brought up with morals, values, respect, and most importantly love. However, and even considering all of this, and for reasons which are many that cause this, but I began drinking and drugging at age 12, and as earlier stated, now a couple months away from 50, former Bassist for a legendary band with whom I recorded 5 C.D.'s with, traveled a few occasions to over 45 countries, overdosed 3 different times in 3 different countries, and am now celebrating nearly 2 yrs in recovery meaning no mind altering substances have entered my body for those nearly 2 yrs, and just wanted to speak up as this video made me even more aware how my disease that I suffer from doesn't discriminate and I apologize for rambling on but I have only one more thing to add and that is to love each other and your particular higher power of choice with all your might and as every religion teaches in it's own way, "Do unto others, as you would have done unto you." The Golden Rule now something of the past it seems. Thank you if you have read this and if it pertains to you or someone you know, reach out, show them your love and support, try to understand that this is a non-discriminatory disease that can cause good people to do awful things and realize & put action to the words Love One Another, learn to forgive, and remember the key to recovery involves helping others, stepping out of self for a change, and give away what was once so freely given to you. ✌️🤟🤘

As someone else has already pointed out, reading between the lines, if there had not been multiple 911 calls about this lieutenant's erratic driving, he might well have been let go. The arresting offer says, several times: "I would lose my career if I let you go", and then goes on to explain that there have already been numerous 911 calls made, and if anything else, [such as an accident, I guess], happened "down the road", after I let you go, then he would certainly be in Shit Creek without a paddle. Imagine if it had been a random stop with no prior 911 calls. They would'a' likely let him go. Then again, the arresting cop may be just saying that to be friendly and shift his responsibility to others in this situation so that he can say "look, this ain't personal..." I don't know...

Unfortunately a black eye for police. These guys do exist out there. I do tend to agree that if it was anyone else who wasn't confirmed as Law Enforcement would have been handled much quicker, however there are plenty of videos of police giving "Normal People" ample opportunity to comply. Each situation is unique out there and I think giving too much leniency because the guy is a cop makes the situation even more dangerous. You just don't know what people will do when lit. Hats off to the officers dealing with this dingbat. Alcohol can certainly bring out the worst in some folks. Sad.

Cops should not arrest one another. It is wrong. That police Lt. probably worked hard to get that rank in his department. This was NOT his fault. He should have been given a break. He has probably been divorced or experienced other similar personal issues that cause him to drink excessively. A police job is probably very stressful in a way that ordinary citizens cannot imagine. Being a gun toting drunken idiot that has to constantly cover up for bad 👮 cop incidents must be so tough to live with, that only Alcohol can make him happy.

Update The drunk cop in the video did the right thing and refused a sobriety test on the side of the road and was able to wing it there for 25 minutes and on the way back to the station he was able to sleep it off and sobered up when he got to the police station and got off free

The more time ticks by the lower his BAC goes. He will no doubt refuse blood which requires a court order to take then. More time. Stop jerking off. You have probable cause. Make the arrest. Go get that blood asap.
