MEDFORD, Mass. – A detective in Massachusetts has been placed on paid administrative leave after a confrontation with a driver was caught on camera.

The driver admits that he took a wrong turn at a traffic circle and was pulled over by Det. Stephen LeBert, with the Medford Police Department.

The 25-year-old driver says he didn’t realize LeBert was a member of law enforcement until he pulled out his badge.

At the time, LeBert was off-duty and was wearing camouflage shorts and a tank top.

“He wasn’t driving a police vehicle. There were no lights. There was nothing,” he told WHDH.

The driver’s car was equipped with a dashboard camera, which recorded the entire confrontation.

“I’ll put a hole right through your head,” LeBert is allegedly heard saying. “You’re lucky I’m a cop because I’d be beating the f***ing p*** out of you right now.”

The Medford Police Department says it is investigating the incident.
