Anthony Cappucci Scottsdale Police Department8401 E. Indian School Road Scottsdale, Arizona United States of America
Im writing in because I just recently heard a story from a person I met. The nicest guy I met and I HAD to write about it because it was horrifically appalling! So this young man Michael tells me about an incident which took place in Scottsdale on the night of 5/28/2012. He was driving in Scottsdale on Indian school road when an officer known as Anthony Cappucci pulled him over for no apparent reason. He had been obeying ALL driving/traffic laws. The officer began to ask him if he knew why he had pulled him over and if he was drinking. He told him he was swaying in and out of his lane "drifting" and that he wasn't driving straight within his lane.
Officer Anthony Cappucci then asked him to step out of the car. Michael told him he was the designated driver and then the officer wanted him to perform monkey tests (walking, staring at pen's, alphabets, etc). [continued below]....
As they were performing an "inventory" check on his vehicle, they came across his pistol under his seat. Officer Anthony Cappucci then asked him why he didn't tell him he had a pistol in his car, and he told him, because you never asked me. Officer Anthony Cappucci then added a charge of "Deadly weapon/Failure to Admit" to his ticket. Michael then asked him why wouldn't he admit to having a pistol in his vehicle if he had asked? In the state of Arizona, you are only required to tell an officer you have a weapon when it is asked. He tried explaining to the officer that he was a Federally Licensed Firearms dealer and that he sold firearms to police officers as well as military personnel. He was familiar with gun laws. Officer Anthony Cappucci then said with a cocky, unstable/volatile attitude, "boy you're lucky I didn't see that, ohhh I was in Iraq, you would have been in trouble!", Im assuming he was referring to his combat flash backs. Michael told me that attempting to explain anything further didnt matter to Officer Anthony Cappucci, and that he continued to brag on how he has over 1000 DUI's in pocket and was very proud. It sounds to me like he was hoping to increase his personal DUI record.
I can see how Officer Anthony Cappucci has accomplished such a high score card. I guess it's more of a competition in the Scottsdale Police department. He utterly lied on his report to make him sound like a swaying slurring armed drunk.
Anthony Cappucci enjoys ruining people's lives with lies and competing for score cards. Michael had never been in trouble with the law until this encounter with Officer Anthony Cappucci, and quite the opposite. You will find police officers in his small store/shop bringing him there Glock's for maintenance or cleaning and purchasing boots for duty. Something needs to be done to prevent Officer Anthony Cappucci from falsely arresting and destroying people's lives.
Please let me know if anything can be done or if you can help him somehow. I dont know what else Michael can really do. People like Officer Anthony Cappucci give ALL police departments a bad name. He needs to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before he really hurts someone if he wasnt all ready. Im a BIG fan of Ripoffreport.com and I know if something can be done, you guys would know how to get it done! Thank you so much for your help. Just email this website and ask them to give me your contact information
