This Aussie Cop Has No Chill

** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **
A senior Queensland cop is facing criminal charges after pulling his gun on a speeding motorist – but is still demanding to be paid while he is suspended. The video is part of a collection of clips tendered to a civil hearing before a judge in the Supreme Court as the now-suspended policeman fights to have his pay reinstated.

The first video shows Senior Constable Stephen Flanagan driving on the Landsborough Highway on the outskirts of Longreach before he spots a ute driving 126 kilometres per hour in a 110kph zone. It was tendered by lawyers for Police Commissioner Ian Stewart in an affidavit responding to Flanagan’s application. The video shows Flanagan trying to use his horn to pull the driver over while his siren is off.

“F****** pull over now c***,” he said to himself after honking.

The driver slows down, drives off, then pulls over again amid more honking.

The dashcam shows Flanagan emerging from the police car, pointing a gun at the driver saying: “Get out of your f****** car right now.”

Also tendered to court was a smartphone recording made by the driver’s partner as she sat in the ute.

“What the f*** are you pulling here today?” Flanagan said to her partner.

“You came past me – I’m bloody beeping the horn up the side to point you over and you still keep driving.

“What is your f****** story? Do you have a licence?

“You didn’t see me? Right, where’s your licence dickhead?”

The driver was then handcuffed while Flanagan checked his registration but was released a short time later when the senior constable realised it was not a stolen car as he first assumed. The couple later filed an official complaint prompting the immediate suspension of Flanagan. He was also charged with assault and deprivation of liberty after an investigation by the Ethical Standards Command. But Flanagan said withholding pay during his suspension was unfair. In his application to court, Flanagan said he thought the car was stolen and he had not realised his sirens were not on.

In submissions, senior police management said it stood by its decision and tendered another video of Flanagan in a separate incident on the Gold Coast in 2013 in which he was stood down for failing to treat a driver with appropriate dignity and respect. In this video, he pulled a driver over on the M1 motorway for allegedly speeding.

“You’re doing 150 and you’re driving like an absolute c*** mate,” he said.

“No, I wasn’t,” the driver replied.

As the driver explained his actions, his keys were thrown to the ground.

“We’ll go to court and I’ll sit there and drink coffee and laugh my ass off while you get convicted, how’s that sound?” Flanagan said.

Flanagan will face court on the criminal charges in relation to the Longreach incident later this week while the Supreme Court decides on the outcome of his pay. Under the suspension order, he is still allowed to find casual work for the time being.

  1. I bet that cop was picked on his whole life, so he went and got himself a badge and gun and now he's the bully towards others so he can get his revenge on society.

  2. That is such a disgrace to the Australian police force and the world is going to see it I hope the idiot watches the video on YouTube with the comments to see how much of a ** head he is

  3. It would be hard to take any Aussie cop seriously considering the way they talk. I'm sorry but Aussie speech it is weak. Who says arse and why?

  4. We can all beep our horns pull people over hold a gun to there back handcuff them for 15 mins if they are speeding and not be jailed because this cop can do it so where is the fairness in that? I might try it with all the hooks on the road risking our children's lives everyday they are always going to be above the law fucken government

  5. Greatest aussie cop ever … Speeding kills more innocent lives than guns …. speeding is ISIS strategy of mass killing … So F@#$ U whoever think speeding is laughable matter , hope your family taste your laughing sense !

  6. The cop who pulled me over for speeding was a saint compared to this guy. Treated me fairly, didn't lose his shit and appreciated my honesty. I'd expect a lecture about speeding but the language and attitude from this guy 😲

  7. With regards the second cop.
    I think hes been to a few too many fatal accidents that have been caused by idiots doing crazy speeds with alot of innocent drivers around.
    Believe me, if he was tailgating my daughter or wife like that, id wanna "snap him in half" as well!!

    With the first guy.
    If he had no lights or siren, in an unmarked, i dont think id be pulling over either. Especially on an isolated country road.
