Cell phone video captured an altercation along a busy California highway Friday after a police officer pulled over a funeral procession.
A California Highway Patrol officer is seen in the video arguing with upset family members after the procession's traffic escort was stopped and ticketed. The escort was taking about 100 cars to a cemetery in the Hollywood hills.
"Can you explain to all of us why you pulled a whole family over?"
Rachel Behn-Humphrey told KTLA her mother was going to be buried that day. She said the officer claimed the procession was moving too slowly on Interstate 10.
"And then looking and seeing the car my mom was in on the side of the freeway too. That was embarrassing. That was very embarrassing and very hurtful," Behn-Humphrey told KTLA.
The traffic stop ended up causing further congestion on the freeway and they arrived at the cemetery an hour later than planned, she said.
"A lot of family members didn't make it do the gravesite ... we sat on the side of the freeway so long they had to leave. I saw some drive past," said Behn-Humphrey.
