Former Major League Baseball player Johnny Damon got in a scuffle with cops near Orlando last month that was captured on an officer’s body camera.The former outfielder appeared to fail field sobriety tests and even brought up his support for former President Donald Trump as a reason he was being targeted.”Hey, bro, I’m a good f****** guy.I know people are trying to target me because I’m a Trump supporter,” Damon told the cop.Damon and his wife were pulled over at around 1:23 a.m. on Feb. 19 in Windermere after cops say he was swerving on the road and driving erratically, TMZ reported.Once stopped, body cam footage captured Damon admitting to drinking before getting behind the wheel.In the video, the officer ordered Damon’s wife to stay in the car, but the former Yankee and Red Sox star told his wife to walk home which led to a pushing and shoving match.Damon and his wife repeatedly talked about their support for cops, mentioning over and over, “Blue lives matter.”He was arrested and booked on multiple charges, including driving under the influence and resisting arrest without violence.A police report later showed cops said Damon’s blood-alcohol level was .30, nearly four times the legal limit.Watch the video below.
