A white Maryland police officer caught on tape holding a gun to a black man’s head was sentenced to five years in prison Friday.
No one was hurt in the May 2014 encounter, but Prince George’s County Police Officer Jenchesky Santiago held a gun to William Cunningham’s head while screaming at him, all because the officer said Cunningham had parked illegally, Fox5DC reports. It turns out Cunningham had not parked illegally at all.
“Video this!” Cunningham says in the video. “He put a gun to my head.”
Santiago holds the gun to his head as Cunningham stares at him. Cunningham then turns his back on Santiago.
