Body camera footage shows police officers pointing guns at Yankees GM Brian Cashman

Police body camera shows brief but tense confrontation as Connecticut officers draw guns on Yankees GM Brian Cashman.

Police body camera video released on Wednesday provided a firsthand account of the brief, albeit tense confrontation between officers in Darien, Connecticut, and an unsuspecting New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman.

Cashman's white Jeep Wrangler matched the description of another vehicle police were searching for in the area.

Complicating matters was the fact that Cashman’s Jeep had been reported stolen six days prior in New York.

“They’re clearly very professional and trained and they asked me to turn my car off, exit the vehicle, walk backwards towards them…they were executing their duty.”

At the time he was pulled over, Cashman was driving the Jeep to the Norwalk police station so it could be processed for an investigation related to the vehicle being stolen.
