Early on the morning of August 14th, 2019 a YouTuber who’s channel goes by “News Now Patrick” visited the York Police Department. This channel has a history of uploading videos with law enforcement confrontations. The video was live on YouTube that morning and begins with a male entering the lobby of the York Police Department asking for a form to file a complaint against an officer. The department didn’t have said form, so the male who was talking to the officers and videoing then argued with the officers and left the building.
When the male went outside a female was with him as well. While outside the couple questions the officers more. What looked like the end of the discussion ended and the couple headed to their vehicle, they decided to venture back to the front of the Department building to continue to record. Later the couple walks to their vehicle a few blocks from the Police Department Building to block the license plate of the vehicle. One of the officers tries to check the plates and the VIN number, but the couple will not move out of the way and then argues with the officer. The couple then claims that the officer assaulted them. With it being an on going investigation, Cheif of Police Ed Tjaden offered this comment on the situation.
