Meet off duty police officer Brandon Harrison of St. Joseph, Missouri.
He was in a car accident with the other man you see in this video. And this is how he responded.
And yes he is wearing a Trump hat.

Two two drivers had apparently collided in their vehicles. Harrison was off-duty at the time, but made clear his position while yelling expletives at the man—"I am on vacation and I will fuck you up…. See who they fucking believe, bitch." A uniformed officer on the scene ordered the man to obey Harrison's demand to sit down and "do what he says", then allows Harrison to participate in a search of the man's vehicle. Local media report that she has not been disciplined and the department has refused to release her name.
