Miami Police were involved in what seemed to be a routine traffic stop a couple of days ago, but they pulled over the wrong man. What happened next is something you have to see!
Marcel Jackson was in uniform and filmed the incident with his personal GoPro, much to his and Lieutenant David Ramras’ dismay. Ramras was caught speeding as Jackson followed him for a couple of blocks before finally pulling him over. Sadly, Ramras was under cover and working for Internal Affairs, which outranks the police in most situations.
Jackson didn’t know Ramras was Internal Affairs when he approached and asked for his license and proof of insurance. At this point, David Ramras allegedly attempted to make small talk as a distraction, and then lunged at the officer. He attracted a lot of the wrong attention as a fight broke out, Jackson pinning his superior on the ground. Miami Police officers from a nearby K-9 unit stopped to help the officer and later break up the fight.
After the fight was finally over, the other police had them standing next to the Marlboro gas station ad. The yelling continued as Ramras asked the officer, “Do you know who the f*** I am?”

The realization hit Jackson at that point as he eventually returned to the cruiser to take the GoPro off the dashboard and put it between the seats.
“Time will tell how this will play out. I believe that Officer Jackson was acting in good faith when he pulled over Lt. Ramras. Once the contact was made between the officer and the lieutenant, that’s where things get sketchy.
“Only time will tell once the investigation plays out who was in the right and who was in the wrong.”
Marcel Jackson had defended his position, possibly escalating it further at the time, “I’m like, I don’t know who you are, Bro. I don’t care if you’re a lieutenant or whoever you are.” This was probably before Ramras clearly told him.
Ramras has been reassigned, and though Jackson was reportedly suspended, Police Chief Manuel Orosa denies any such action.
Who do you think was at fault in this fight between a Miami Police officer and an Internal Affairs Lieutenant?
