Dash cam shows officer’s racial remarks

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A former Columbus police officer who resigned last week for falsely accusing Chief Ricky Boren of using a racial slur was suspended six years ago for making discriminatory remarks.

This is dash cam video showing former officer Jeff Foxx making discriminatory remarks about "white folks."

Foxx is African-American.

Records show Foxx was having a personal cell phone conversation as he initiated a traffic stop in 2007.

He stopped a pick-up being driven by a white female and can be heard saying, "I'm hooking these white folks up with tickets."

Foxx was given a one day suspension for the remarks.
