Police Officer Caught On Camera Extorting Driver [Video]

A Philadelphia police officer will hopefully be facing some serious trouble after being caught on camera forcing a driver to buy tickets to a fundraiser or else he faced being arrested.

Since release of the video that has now gone viral, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey has said that Internal Affairs are investigating the incident involving the officer, 32-year-old Matthew Zagursky.

Zagursky is nine year veteran of the police department. Zagursky is heard asking the driver if he has money to buy tickets to the Police and Fire Hero Thrill Show fundraiser. The money from the show is used to pay the college tuition for children of Philadelphia police officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty.
