Monticello Mayor Gordon Jenkins resignation

Gordon Jenkins (pictured), the mayor of Monticello, N.Y., is under fire after he was captured on video hurling abusive language to police officers after being arrested for drunk driving, CBS New York reports.

Watch the videos below and take our poll at the bottom of the post

The mayor was taken into custody after showing up at the scene of a car accident. A volunteer firefighter noticed that Jenkins looked drunk and notified a police officer. He was arrested on the spot.

Though the already embarrassing arrest got worse when he got to the police station, where he was seated at a table with one hand handcuffed to the wall. In the beginning of the video, Jenkins is heard speaking to himself and using vulgar langauge to describe the police officers. When an officer entered the room to interview Jenkins, he began directing his abusive language towards him.

Here is a rundown of the most controversial remarks made between Jenkins and the officers:

“You know something, Davis?” he says to the officer in the video. “I’m the one that hired you in this job, man. I mean, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter about that. But you know something? How the f**k you guys going to play the game?”

When the officer later addresses him as “sir,” Jenkins replies: “Don’t call me sir.”

“Mayor? Is that better?” the officer says.

“Don’t call me mayor,” Jenkins replies. “Call me n****r, because that’s what I am when I’m right here in handcuffs. But you know something? I don’t give a f**k.”

Altogether, hours of video were released, showing Jenkins not happy about his arrest.

“What are you going to do? Put me in jail five years? I’ll get out in five years, and I going to f***ing tell you what the f**k you did to me, and I’m going to come back to you,” he tells an officer later.

Watch news report here:

Jenkins was charged with DWI, refusing a Breathalyzer, obstruction of justice and criminal mischief. The last charge came towards the end of the first video when the mayor  stood up, pulled a clock off the wall, and threw it out the door of the interrogation room.

“Why did you break the clock?” an officer asks.

“Because I called you and you didn’t answer, and you f***ed… these cuffs are too tight,” Jenkins said. When the officer returns to the room, he accuses the officer of trying to “humiliate” him.

The incident is the talk of the small upstate New York town and the Monticello Police Benevolent Association is calling for Jenkins to step down.

“It’s a sad situation and I think he needs some help and he should get it,” John Riegler, president of the P.B.A., said.

The mayor has been in trouble with the law before. In 2011, Jenkins pleaded guilty to selling counterfeit sneakers. In 2012, he was cuffed for allegedly hitting a police officer. In July, he appointed his live-in girlfriend, Rochelle Massey, to the village board of trustees.

Jenkins future is unclear, but he may get word on his fate when the Monticello Village Trustees’ meeting takes place on Dec. 6.
