A Georgia mayor says it was “inexcusable and unprofessional” for two of her city’s police officers to use a simulated coin toss to decide whether to arrest a woman after a traffic stop.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Roswell Mayor Lori Henry addressed the officers’ behavior on her Facebook page Sunday, writing that she was “shocked and offended by their actions.”

Roswell officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson were placed on administrative leave after the April traffic stop. WXIA-TV obtained body camera footage that showed them using a cellphone app that mimics a coin toss to decide whether to arrest a speeding motorist after Brown says she didn’t record the driver’s speed with her radar gun.

Charges against the driver, Sarah Webb, were later dropped.

  1. “inexcusable and unprofessional”, actually quite typical. This is why these people go into policing in the first place. They are a bunch of power hungry thugs looking to feel powerful at others expense. She is giggling while she ruins someone else’s life. That says it all. A buntch of gothchya thugs

  2. Unfortunately this is nothing new, all this is being exposed today because of those cameras they are required to wear on themselves. They say “power corrupts”, and this is a perfect example it. Even if they have good intentions when they join, it eventually changes their whole character. Maybe that’s why the divorce rate is higher between law – enforcement. And than they want know why people hate them, I hate them too.
