Ed Morrissey has the details at Hot Air. I know this is Jack Posobiec, whom I have blocked, but video footage is video footage.

Fox News has the story:
Michigan State Police released bodycam footage on Sunday of an incident involving Democratic state Rep. Jewell Jones, who was reportedly charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest, and weapons possession following a collision last week on Interstate 96 in Fowlerville.
The video shows police tackle a combative Jones to the ground after he physically resisted arrest and threatened to call Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Jones can be heard reminding the officers that he had oversight of their budget as they attempt to put handcuffs on him.
“I don’t give a f— bro, when I call Gretchen [Whitmer] I’ll (sic) need y’all (sic) ID’s badge numbers everything,” Jones says in the footage.
“It’s not going to be good for you, I’m telling you. I run y’alls budget, bro,” he told a trooper.
When an officer asked Jones to present his driver’s license, the 26-year-old responded, “I can’t do that.”
Police initially arrested Jones, 26, on April 6, after his black Chevy Tahoe, bearing an “ELECTED” vanity plate, drifted erratically across multiple lanes before he pulled off onto the shoulder and rolled into a ditch, according to reports.
I suspect he’ll play the race/police brutality card. Only time will tell whether that will work.
