Body Cam Video: UT Football Player Arrested, Insults Cops, Calls Coach


When UT football player Jeremy Banks was arrested for having an outstanding warrant, he was respectful. For a short time. Then he insulted the cops on video by saying, "Where I come from, we shoot at cops. I'm from Memphis, TN." He also talked about his choice to not run. He told the cops he should have ran, and he would have outraced them.

He also called Vols coach Jeremy Pruitt. When coach Pruitt heard the details of the incident, he called Banks' comments "unacceptable" and forced the linebacker to apologize.

Cops pulled Banks over after an illegal u-turn and found he was wanted for driving without a license during an incident in July.
