WATCH: Body cam footage shows Yankees GM's gunpoint traffic stop

Posted: Updated:

New video shows Darien police's traffic stop that began with guns pointed at Yankees general manager Brian Cashman.

Police say they were responding to a report last week of a man with a holstered gun in a doctor's office who was driving a Jeep. After running the plates on Cashman's vehicle believing it was stolen, police told Cashman to stop his car and put his hands up.

The body camera footage shows an officer pulling his gun, asking Cashman to put his hands out the window. It then shows Cashman step out of the Jeep and walk backward.

A few moments later, an officer says. "You look very familiar to me." Cashman responds, "I am the GM of the New York Yankees."

Cashman has said he has no issue with how the situation was handled.

Darien police declined to speak on camera about the situation, saying the video speaks for itself.
