Georgia Cops Suspended For Flipping Coin To Decide On Driver's Arrest

Georgia Cops Suspended For Flipping Coin To Decide On Driver's Arrest

Heads, you're released and tails you go to jail - those were the odds Sarah Webb faced in a traffic stop in April. The cop then asks her cohorts what should be done next.

Webb was caught allegedly speeding past a police cruiser in Georgia and was pulled over. When the pair pulled Webb over, the woman explained that she was late for work and pleaded with Brown to give her a speeding fine rather than arrest her on the much more serious charge of risky driving.

"It just hurt to know that these people are supposed to be looking out for you and it was a game to them", she said.

Sarah's mother Teresa shared a clip of the footage on Facebook, sharing her anger at the actions of her local law enforcement officers.

After Brown notes that she doesn't have speed detection on her and Wilson adds that she doesn't have any tickets, the following conversation between the two cops occurs as Brown proceeds to open a coin flip app on her phone. These were the moments that followed.

Officer Wilson: "This is tail right?"

The woman they pulled over said she's dismayed by the officers' coin flip approach.

However Ryanair has said employment conditions for its staff are competitive, if not better, than those offered by rival carriers. We thought it would get better in 2018 but it's getting worse", he was reported to have told an aviation conference in Sydney.

Brown responds, "Yeah. So release?"

But perhaps forgetting, or not caring, Wilson called for Sarah's arrest, using the code "23".

Officer Brown: "Michael Jordan?"

As she is led towards the vehicle, Webb begins to cry, and body cam shows the hair stylist sobbing in the back seat of the patrol auto. She didn't even find out about the fateful flip until The Investigators contacted her.

Webb had no idea about the coin flip until Atlanta's WXIA uncovered the video.

The television station reports that the charges against Webb were dropped. The prosecutor dismissed the case and spoke to Webb.

"I believe that this is not the first time they have done this because they did it easily - they knew right where to go for the coin toss in the app; they thought it was cute", she said.

Roswell police have launched its own internal investigation.
