Footage From Johnny Damon Arrest Released To Public


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Windermere, Florida police department has released the body cam footage from the night of the arrest of former Red Sox outfielder Johnny Damon. The footage shows Damon slurring his words as police order him out of the car.

Damon played for the Red Sox between 2002 and 2005.

At one point, a scuffle broke out between the arresting police officer, Damon, and his wife, Michelle Mangan-Damon.

During the video, Damon's wife pointed out their car's "Blue Lives Matter" license plate to the officer, while Damon says "Guys, we are all for cops." Later, Damon claimed he had been pulled over because he's a Trump supporter.

The officer who pulled Damon over tells him he swerved out of his lane, struck the curb while driving, and failed to properly stop at a stop sign.

The full body cam video was published online by the City of Windermere, and can be seen here.

Damon was charged with driving under the influence and resisting an officer without violence, while Mangan-Damon was charged with battery and resisting an officer with violence.
