Unlike the playful characters, Axel Foley and Billy Rosewood portrayed by Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold respectively in the 1980s blockbuster "Beverly Hills Cop" and its sequels, these real life boys in blue mean business.
The story has it that a pair of young girls was pulled over last Thursday, August 2, in Beverly Hills by LA County Sheriff’s deputies, allegedly for driving a stolen vehicle – an older generation Mercedes-Benz CLK Convertible, if our eyes don't deceive us.
YouTube user 'Speedracer38' happened to be in the right place at the right time and filmed the entire incident from the moment the police stopped the car and began calling out the driver and her passenger.
Overall, there were said to be around 15 to 20 police cars as well as a helicopter that was patrolling the area from above.
The YouTube user says that after the police frisked the girls, they were allowed to go but the car was taken away, something that seems to confirm reports that the driver may have borrowed the car from her mother, likely without her knowledge and/or permission.
Below you will find a description from the YouTube user who filmed the accident up until the point that a...mild-mannered cop yelled at him, "You at the fence line, hey, get the f…k out of the way!":
"Last week I was in Beverly Hills at my friends house when we noticed a car being pulled over by a Beverly Hills police officer. Right after we saw the first police car we saw at least 15 - 20 police cars come flying to the scene with officers jumping out of their cars with their guns drawn.
At this point I didn't have time to grab my Canon 5d mk3 so I turned on my cell phone camera and started recording. The police were so focused on arresting the driver and passenger they didn't notice me recording behind my friends fence until after both occupants of the car were detained. I still wonder if the helicopter that was called in saw me along the fence and reported it to the officers below.
Regardless this was a crazy scene to witness in Beverly Hills where you would think crime is non-existant. After quite some time both girls were taken out of handcuffs and not even arrested but the car they were driving was reported stolen so it was taken away by the police."
Update: Therese Kosterman, Public Information Manager for the City of Beverly Hills, told CarScoop that the officers involved in the arrest are from the LA County Sheriff's Department and not from the Beverly Hills Police Department as originally stated in the article.
