A man in Inglewood, California, is receiving both praise and criticism for the way he handled a recent exchange with a pair of police officers who knocked on his door while searching for a wanted felon accused of beating his girlfriend. Avel Amarel uploaded video of the interaction to Facebook on August 25 and it has since been shared more than 10,000 times.
In the video, Amarel answers the door with his cellphone camera recording. One of the officers immediately asks him to turn the camera off.
“No, I can’t,” Amarel responds.
“OK, I said turn it off,” the officer says.
Amarel refuses to comply with the officer’s order and things eventually calm down after the situation briefly turned chaotic.
