Video shows cops using coin flip to decide whether to arrest

"'A" (Arrest), head; "R' (Release), tail", Wilson says before both officers giggle.

They made a decision to flip a coin to decide it: heads, arrest; tails, release, according to the statement by the Roswell Police Department.

Two police officers in an Atlanta suburb are on administrative leave after their chief watched body camera video that appears to show them joking about using a coin flip app to determine whether a driver would be arrested for reckless driving. Officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson could not decide whether to give Webb a ticket for reckless driving or arrest her, so instead, they used the coin flip method. So Brown opened a coin flip app on her phone.

Later they discuss the coin flip app. The other officer responds, "Yeah, so release?" followed by the first officer saying "23".

Two police officers in Georgia have been suspended after their own body cams revealed a traffic stop gone wrong.

Brown and Wilson were filmed giggling as they were filmed arresting Sarah Webb in April.

"Michael Jordan? [The slang for the arrest code]" Brown said.

Back in the patrol auto, officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson faced a decision.

She said the officers received 'a paid vacation'.

"I just want to see the two officers, I want to see justice", she said.

Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grants told WSB-TV he was appalled when he found out about the incident from an internal department source earlier this month.

The television station reports that the charges against Webb were dropped.

"I've been a law enforcement professional for nearly 40 years and, again, I was appalled to believe that a police officer would let a flip of a coin be the deciding factor in whether to issue someone a citation or, more importantly, take someone into custody", Grant said.

Webb did not know about the coin toss until contacted by the station, which reported several officers knew about the incident but did not raise concerns internally.

'I would like to see them fired, because they shouldn't have been playing with my freedom on a flip of a coin, ' she said.
