Body-camera footage released Wednesday by Connecticut police show New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman getting stopped by cops at gunpoint in an apparent mix-up involving his own stolen vehicle and a separate report of an armed man at a doctor’s office.
The confrontation came after police responding to a report of a man with a gun who had been seen driving a white Jeep spotted Cashman’s vehicle — which incorrectly was still listed as stolen despite having been recovered by New York police days earlier.
Cashman was stopped at a Shell gas station in Darien when he was surrounded by police.
“Driver turn off your car and put your hands up! Put your hands out the window,” a Darien police officer is heard yelling on the video, which captures the cop with his gun pointed in Cashman’s direction.
