White man claims he was treated like a black person while being arrested at airport
Jeffrey Epstein, a 59-year-old doctor, was arrested by police after they received a complaint regarding an unruly passenger at the ticket counter of the America Airlines a little before 6:00 a.m.
In a video shared on YouTube on August 18, 2018, Epstein can be seen yelling at the police officers after they arrived at the ticket counter at the Orlando International Airport.
According to WESH 2 News, the police calmed Epstein down after they spoke to him, but he got angry again when he was told that the airline was not going to let him get on the plane because of his unruly behavior.
The police said that Epstein was so furious that he was frothing at the mouth. The video shows Epstein talking to the police officers in a loud voice, and then a few words are exchanged between them.

At one point in the video, Epstein lifts both his hands up and asks the police officers to, “come arrest me, give me a fight.”
When the law enforcement officers move to Epstein and attempt to handcuff him, he resists them and says that he couldn't believe that the officers were arresting a “white person.”
When he gets a little out of control during the struggle with the officers, one of the officers uses a pepper spray on him.

Police said that after his arrest, Epstein was taken to a hospital after he started to complain that he had chest pains. On the way to the hospital, he told an officer that “he had created a huge disturbance” and did it on purpose, reported WESH 2 News.
After he was released from jail the doctor who practices in Lakeland, spoke with WESH 2 News.
Epstein said that the reason that he had created the disturbance was as he wanted to prove a point about the police’s use of force.
"If you're going to do this to a white doctor, who's 59-years-old, for doing nothing, then why would black people trust you?"

He went on to add that he was a conservative Republican and a Trump supporter. He said until the police fix the problem of the use of force, he didn't blame the black people for being upset when they get arrested. He also spoke about teaching the American Airlines a thing or two about customer service and said that the reason that he was loud was that he wanted everything to be out in the open.
In another incident, Ambar Pacheco, a 26-year-old officer from the North Miami Beach police department, was taken into custody for kicking a pregnant woman on her stomach; Pacheco was off-duty when the incident occurred.
The Miami Herald reported that Ambar Pacheco, a police officer, had been charged with a count of aggravated battery after she attacked the woman on July 25, 2018, in South Beach.
North Miami Beach Police also issued a statement which said Pacheco was fired from her post at the police department.
According to the arrest affidavit, Evoni Murray, an eight-month-old pregnant woman, was with her boyfriend, Joseph Predelus, 40.
Pacheco, along with her 21-year-old sister, Mikaela Pacheco, came across the couple at the busy corner of Espanola Way and Washington Avenue.

The reason for the fight was not stated, but Pacheco told the police that Predelus punched her sister in the face. Hence she fought back.
Murray, 27, was in extreme pain when the Miami Beach Fire rescue team arrived at the scene and took her to the Mount Sinai Hospital.
Police departments around the world also get the positive news coverage that they deserve. A 99-year-old Dutch woman's long-time wish of getting arrested once in her life was fulfilled.
Annie ticked off the wish that sat on the top of her bucket list, when Police officers from Nijmegen-Zuid, Netherlands arrested her.
The police department took to Facebook to share the photos of an excited Annie from the prison cell on February 23, 2017.
Annie's niece had contacted the police in the town of Nijmegen-Zuid, which is 75 miles south-east of Amsterdam and told them about her aunt's lifelong dream to get arrested.
Even though the police could not arrest Annie because of the rule that civilians are not allowed inside an area with cells, they were unable to decline such a request.
The cops bent the rules a little bit and “arranged a visit for Annie in a dwell chamber.”
Annie was picked up by the police. She was handcuffed and put in a cell. She happily posed for photos. Her delight at the fulfillment of her wish is visible in the photographs posted by the police department.
