Roswell: Officers decide to arrest a driver using a coin flip app

Roswell: Officers decide to arrest a driver using a coin flip app

The police officers who used a coin flip to decide they were going to detain a woman who allegedly drove over the speed limit have been suspended.

'These are people who are supposed to protect us, and instead are treating our freedom and our lives like games, ' Webb, 24, told NBC News on Friday.

Roswell, GA police made an arrest rather than ticket a driver based on a coin toss.

Brown and Wilson were filmed giggling as they were filmed arresting Sarah Webb in April.

Webb sobs as Brown leads her to a patrol auto, where at least four police vehicles and multiple officers had arrived to back up the arrest that was created out of subverted chance.

Brown and Wilson have been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation, according to WXIA.

The officers are being dubbed #CoinFlipCops.

Both officers had served in the Atlanta Police Department, spokesman John Chafee told The Washington Post on Saturday.

"I just want to see the two officers, I want to see justice", she said.

The sound of the app's coin flip is heard, and then one officer says, "This says tails, right?"

This traffic stop happened in early April, but Roswell didn't put officers Brown and Wilson on administrative leave before 11Alive started asking questions two months later.

WSB-TV reports 23 and Michael Jordan are code words police use to refer to an arrest.

Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said a department source told him about the incident right before the Fourth of July.

"I think they should be fired I don't think at all that they should be getting a paid vacation", said Webb. She was handcuffed and placed in the back of the police cruiser crying. An internal affairs investigation is already underway. "This behavior is not indicative of the hard working officers of the Roswell Police Department, I have much higher expectations of our police officers and I am appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision making process of something as important as the arrest of a person".
