Local pastor hurls anti-white, racist slurs while handcuffed in back of police car

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (WXYZ) - A local pastor is caught on police video hurling racist and bigoted words at police and his own parishioners. 

In the Highland Park Police video, obtained from an anonymous source, Rev. David Bullock is in the back seat of a police car on the day in June when he was arrested for allegedly interfering with a police investigation.

And it's clear Bullock feels wronged by the arresting officer who is white. 

While handcuffed in the back of the police car, Bullock is talking to some of his parishioners outside his church. "Y'all just gonna let this c****** do this (expletive)? Really?" Bullock said. 

The incident started after church as the officer was trying to talk to a woman whose daughter had just been assaulted by someone with mental health issues who had been walking down the street. 

The woman told 7 Action News that the officer warned Bullock to stay back as he talked to her and her daughter, but he wouldn't and he was arrested. 

One woman can be heard trying to calm Bullock down, telling him the officer might release him. Bullock replied, "Ain't no (expletive) might! If he don't (expletive) let me out this car, it's going to be a problem."

"Don't tell me to cooperate. I didn't do anything," said Bullock who accuses the officer of assaulting him. "This is called racism. Don't tell me to cooperate."

Then Bullock hurls the N-word at parishioners as he demands that they open the door of the police car to let him out.

 "Y'all need to open this door, that's what y'all need to do. Y'all need to open this door, that's what y'all need to do. Y'all the scaredest n****** I ever seen in my life," said Bullock who did not respond to our requests for comment Tuesday. 

Bullock is expected to appear in court Wednesday for a hearing in his case of interfering with police.
