A Georgia police officers’ body camera footage has emerged showing Seattle Seahawks defensive end Malik McDowell unleashing a foul-mouthed rant at police officers, after which he was arrested for disorderly conduct outside a Georgia nightclub over the weekend.
The 21-year-old rookie NFL player is heard repeatedly calling a female officer a ‘b***h’ and her male partner the ‘N-word,’ bragging about his wealth and justifying his conduct by claiming that he paid $1million in taxes in the four-minute video.
McDowell, suffered a concussion in an ATV accident back in July and is not an active player, was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning after getting into an altercation over money outside the SL Lounge Club in the Atlanta suburb of Chamblee.
According to an incident report filed by the Chamblee Police Department, at around 2:21 am, the athlete allegedly shouted at a security guard that he had already paid $600. However, the staff claim he had not given them any cash when security allowed him back in before kicking him out again.
The player poured out a couple of bottles of alcohol while inside the nightclub said the arresting officers.
When officers tried to get McDowell into the back of the police car to take him to jail on suspicion of disorderly conduct, the Seahawks player proceed to spew profanities at the officers, whom he repeatedly called ‘dumba** n****rs’ and ‘brokea** n****rs.’
The body camera video below documents McDowell’s arrest. The 21-year-old NFL player justifies the verbal abuse directed at the cops by boasting about his money.
‘B***h, I got money, that’s why I can talk s**t…you’ll be a broke b***h for the rest of your life,’ he rants. ‘B***h, I got lawyer money…I’m rich, b***h, dumbass n***er…I got a lot of f***ing money, you broke a** n***res.’
McDowell signed a four-year, $6.95 million contract with the Seahawks in the spring as a second-round, 35th overall draft pick.
After he was handcuffed and bundled into the back of the squad car, McDowell continued to carry on berating the cops and arguing that as a top-bracket taxpayer, he had the right to do so.
‘I paid a million in taxes this f***ing year. If I wanna call that b***h a b***h, I can,’ he tells the male officer, referring to his female partner. ‘Yes, I can. If I wanna call every officer a b***h, I can.’
The officer seems unconvinced by McDowell’s argument and points out that he paid his taxes in Seattle, not in the City of Chamblee.
‘We didn’t get paid on that – Seattle police did,’ the cops maintain. ‘We’ve been paid off City of Chamblee taxes. You can go to Seattle and call everybody you want a b***h.’
When McDowell was brought to the police station, he insisted that he did nothing unlawful, arguing that his calling an officer ‘a b***h’ does not merit a disorderly conduct charge.
The female arresting officer claimed that the 6-foot-6, 299-pound defensive end put up such a fight that she nearly used a Taser and pepper spray on him.
McDowell was booked for disorderly conduct before being released on $325 bond. On Monday, the obnoxious player tweeted an apology for his outburst saying he was ’embarrassed’ by his actions.
In his message addressed to the police, the Seahawks organization and his teammates, McDowell said that he was ‘a young man who made a mistake’ and that he was ‘constantly working towards getting better.’
McDowell then met with Seahawks general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll, who described the player as ‘very remorseful’ and expressed hope that he would learn from this experience.
‘We’ve already talked about that, and let’s hope that this isn’t an indicator of things to come,’ the coach said.
