It's another drug raid gone wrong, but this time it's in Detroit and -- thankfully -- no one died.
Turns out undercover cops in Detroit posed as drug dealers to help catch a pair of sellers. However, thanks to a “tiny” mess up, another undercover police group thought they were real drug dealers so they raided the house, which quickly became one of the most embarrassing things the department has ever seen. So much so, that the Police Chief even admitted it. Yes, these dumb dumbs didn’t check in first to see who they were going after.
Authorities stated the undercover officers from the 12th Precinct went undercover with the purpose of pretending to be drug dealers so they would arrest the potential buyers. Two pretend buyers went in the house where the pretend drug dealer officers from Precinct 11 were at. Those officers were there to arrest the buyers. Still with me? Okay good.
To sum it up, basically, neither 12 or 11 knew these cops were undercover. So, they began to rampage the place when they arrived and quickly began to yell at each other, which led to fighting like hooligans. And in case you were wondering, yes, they were all wearing body cameras and were able to capture the whole incident. I can definitely see a new show called, “America’s Funniest Cops: Undercover Operation Gone Way Way South.” (Rare)
There's an internal investigation underway to figure out how a group of undercover cops ended up trying to arrest a group of undercover cops. There were over two dozen police officers present, guns were drawn, and punches were thrown. It really is a miracle that no one was killed and there were only minor injuries.
