Georgia: 2 Cops Use Virtual Coin Flip to Decide Whether to Arrest Driver

HeadlineJul 16, 2018
H10 police coin flip arrest

And in an Atlanta suburb, two police officers have been placed on administrative leave after body camera video showed them joking about using a coin flip app to decide whether to arrest a motorist on her way to work. After the virtual coin flip, the Roswell police officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson arrested the motorist, Sarah Webb, and accused her of driving over 80 miles an hour on a road with a speed limit of 45 miles an hour. The arresting officers did not have a radar gun and admitted they estimated her driving speed. Webb spent the day in jail until her charges were dropped.
