A video of police bullying at its finest has gone viral on Facebook. The video shows the victim’s, Donrell Breaux (pictured), home seemingly invaded by a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy who is seen trying to forcibly cuff him without following protocol.

Reportedly, Breaux and friend Eric Banegas were standing on Breaux’s porch just shooting the breeze joking and using profanity. A neighbor emerged from his home and asked the men to lower their voices and be mindful of their bad language. Breaux told The Times-Picayune that the neighbor was combative from the start, and when the men confronted the irate man, he summoned police.

“He threatens to call the police all the time about stuff in the backyard and stuff going on inside the house. Things like, there’s too many cars in the driveway,” Breaux told the news outlet.

When deputies arrived, they reportedly spoke with the unidentified neighbor, then according to the video, proceeded to forcibly enter Breaux’s home while refusing to answer the young man’s questions as to why he is being arrested. Breaux continuously refers to the officer, as “Sir,” even while the policeman wrestles the young man on the couch. The young man then continues to plead with the policeman, stating several times that he is scared and for the officer not to shoot him.

At the end of the video, another deputy is seen joining in the unnerving wrangle.

Watch the unsettling video. 


The incident reportedly took place on March 30th in River Ridge, La.  The encounter was recorded by Banegas who then posted the footage on Facebook two days after.

Breaux told the Times-Picayune that he has seen both of the arresting deputies before at the complaining neighbor’s house and he believes they are friends, stating, ”These are personal friends. I wish I had friends that I could call and have them handle personal vendettas that I have with my neighbors.”

Meanwhile, Breaux was eventually taken in to police custody and was slapped with a slew of charges: battery of a police officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly conduct, and disturbing the peace.

Breaux is trying to obtain an attorney to represent him and is livid about the situation that occurred, showing that citizens never seem to get a fair shake when they’re up against police abuse, ”I’m pretty pissed about the situation,” he said. “I feel this is wrong because they do this all the time and nobody ever has it on video. I feel it’s a problem with the police and people not knowing their rights.”

The Times-Picayne contacted the sheriff’s office and they have offered no comments regarding the video.

  1. The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution places limits on the power of the police to make arrests, search people and their property, and seize objects and contraband (such as illegal drugs or weapons). These limits are the bedrock of search and seizure law.The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

    When a Police Officer says that you are under arrest do not ask any questions. Relax and allow the the man who has a gun, badge and a night stick to handcuff and arrest you. The place to fight the charges and defend yourself is in the courtroom. If you try to fight or resist the officer you could get seriously injured or killed.

      John E, you are so right. I agree with you! Why is it that a lot of people aren’t aware of this? Like I said before, my parents taught my siblings and I this from a very young age!

    If Mr. Breaux had respected the police officer and complied with him from the beginning, none of this would’ve taken place. When a Police Officer ask you do what they ask you to do, you do it, without mouthing off and resistance. When will certain people learn this????? SMDH!!!! I remember my Parents teaching me and my siblings this from a very young age!
