Talk about cold busted!

police arrest teen

To keep his 14-year-old stepdaughter from sleeping with her boyfriend again, a San Jose cop showed up at the 15-year-old boy's house in full uniform, cuffed him and then released him with a stern warning -- only to find himself placed on administrative leave and under criminal investigation for false imprisonment!

According to the San Jose Mercury News, some of the incident was captured on smartphone video. As the cop stood over the boy in his family's living room, he allegedly told the teen, "Not a good thing that the person you had sex with is a cop's daughter. The district attorney will probably file charges. A cop's daughter is not somebody you mess around with. You're stupid."

The officer's lawyer says there was no objection to the handcuffing or lecture, and that "everything was done in the spirit of reaching a troubled young man who was heading down the wrong path."

Initially, the boy's parents complied and thanked the officer for not pressing statutory rape charges. But they later changed their tune and claimed the cop had abused his authority. "He came over in full uniform and parked his motorcycle in front of our house," said the teen's mom. "He didn't come over in jeans and shirt. He didn't come over as a parent. He came over as somebody who had the authority to do whatever he wanted with us." (Ironically, the boy was then arrested by another cop for having unlawful sexual intercourse.)

The cop-dad's attorney counters, "He [was] doing [the boy's parents] a favor by attempting to lecture and educate the young man so he doesn't continue to go down the wrong path. This is two sets of parents navigating the challenges of raising teenage children. The officer's goal was to help and engage in problem solving. Turning this into the blame game does not help the teens. In fact, it sets a poor example for taking personal responsibility."

Crazy story! Do you think the cop dad should be punished for his behavior, or was he justified in trying to scare these kids out of a too-early sexual relationship?

Cop was totally justified! I guess those moron parents of the boy would rather be grandparents. Idiots.

The cop was abusing his authority and should be sent to prison. Neither the boy or the girl hurt anyone. Why was only the boy arrested for having unlawful sexual intercourse? The girl willingly engaged in that too. If it’s a crime for the boy, why isn’t it a crime for the girl? What will an angry cop do next? ‘Fake’ arrest somebody because they took to much time at the grocery checkout line? For getting better grades at school than his kids? False imprisonment is a serious charge and he should be held accountable just as any citizen would be.

I have a lot of family in the law enforcement field and tend to back the cops, but this is taking this way to far. If you have a problem with the person your child is dating, you talk it out, either with them directly or with the other kids parents. You never abuse authority. That guy was way out of line and should face whatever punishment is handed out

Very interesting story. Trying to help keep a teen from being a a troubled teen.

It’s clearly an abuse of power. It should not be tolerated. If people don’t have a problem with cops abusing their authority and uniforms like this to intervene on behalf of family members, then they shouldn’t have a problem with cases like the bounty hunter accused of impersonating a federal agent to ‘deport’ a cousin’s wife, or the Philadelphia cop who put on desk duty after he arrested a woman involved in a dispute with his son, claimed she’d assaulted him and charged her with assaulting an officer (after a video of the incident surfaced the cop who’d testified at the preliminary hearing, did not show up to testify at the trial, and the charges were dropped). Would anyone feel safer if we said it was ok for cops to to abuse their authority/uniforms because someone is in a relationship or dispute with their family member? Do people lose their civil rights if they’re in a relationship or dispute with a friend/family member of a cop?

As I saw in the video, it looked like the police officer was trying to get the kids attention and warn him what could happen. Like it or not, the parents have roles to play as well. If that 15 year old boy got that 14 year old girl pregnant, after this confrontation, I’d arrest the parents. I’ll bet there is more to this then seen. I’ll bet that kid is allowed to go to parties, stay late and not take responsibilities seriously. As the boys parents, I’d apologize, and thank the officer for the help he is “trying” to provide. Watch this crap turn into a multi-million dollar law suit. I’d be happy to help the officer that did (somewhat) what I believe could help both kids.

Fantastic!!! What a great way to get both of the kids attention!!

I totally support the cops actions. NO ONE was hurt by his demonstration and both the teens will be thinking about it the next time they think of having sex. Do I think it will stop them?, Probably not, but there will be no doubt that its going to effect there actions in the future. Again Ill say no one was hurt by his this.

Stop codling these kids then demanding they act with respect and as adults.

Ridiculous! This cop needs to go to prison. If The boy broke the law, the girl did too. If the boy and the girl had gotten caught shoplifting, the girl would have been arrested too. If the boy gets in trouble, the girl should get in trouble too. Does the cop think that the boy raped his daughter? If his daughter was willing to have sex with this boy she should arrested too. She should have this on her record also, then lets see if the cop wants to see his daughter arrested and go to jail, charged with having unlawful sex. Let’s see if the cop wants his daughter to experience what the other inmates do to young girls in jail.

This cop was being naive if he thought that nothing was going to happen once this story got out. Also, I hardly think he needed to stoop to this level. A vaguely veiled threat and closer monitering of his daughter would do.

Kristina September 30, 2010, 10:31 AM

Both kids were willingly having sex with each other. Why did the cop think that the boy was doing something wrong but his daughter wasn’t? Why didn’t he handcuff his daughter? If he was concerned that his daughter might somehow suffer from having sex with a boy,why wasn’t he concerned that the boy might also suffer from having sex with his daughter? Or is it that he wants to own his daughter’s body parts.

The boy’s parents did not know it was a “fake” arrest. They were compliant because they were taking the situation seriously.

I think the boy and girl were EQUALLY wrong and need punishment and guidance by their own parents. The cop should have first informed the boy’s parents before he entered their house under false authority. He needs to take responsibility for his actions a well.

I hope all charges are dropped on the teenagers, and the cop gets reprimanded for abusing authority (but nothing more - as he had good intentions). He cannot go around busting into peoples houses and placing handcuffs just because he is a cop.

The boy’s parents are not deserving of criticism because they are the only one’s that did nothing wrong. Why are some people assuming they were not going to come down hard on their son? They were not even informed of the situation before the cop arrived to “arrest” their son.

Are the boy’s parents allowed to sneak into the girl’s house and act out some scare tactic on her without informing her parents of the plan?

Agent99 September 30, 2010, 6:25 PM

@ Bob,

Wow, you sure make alot of assumptions about the boy’s family. Nowadays teenage girls initiate sex and start having sex younger than most boys and have more partners than boys do. I know because I have a teenage son and I cannot believe what some of his female friends are like (no curfews, no parents call to see where they are at, some have had abortions, etc ). I think the cop needs to focus on his daughter and perhaps use the cuffs to keep her legs together.

@ Dan,

You speak about teaching respect for adults, but the cop totally disrespected the boy’s parents. How would you feel if your child did something dangerous and deserving of your attention and punishment - but instead of informing you of the situation so that you, THE PARENT, could deal with your own child, this other parent lies to get inside your house and then goes on to punish your child as THEY wish. Would you sit back and let someone else parent your child in your own house? Are the boy’s parents allowed to do the same to the girl?

I would agree with the cop, and would press charges at all, I believe that was a very good way to set a lecture and try to straight up the kids path. But despite this I believe he should have spoken with the kids’ parents before doing this. Next thing they could accuse him for selling Kamagra Jelly to the kids as well.

The cop really did nothing wrong in my opinion.

I know a bunch of people will get their panties in a bunch over something like this, but he did the kid a FAVOR.

Too bad adults turned it around and shafted him.

Yorgen December 23, 2010, 8:11 PM

I think the cop had good intentions, but should have told the parents ahead of time. But he should not go to prison for something as petty as this. All he did was teach the kid a lesson that the kid had coming to him.
