Florida doctor Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on Thursday after he created a disturbance at Orlando International Airport.
Orlando, FL – An entitled Lakeland doctor who was arrested after he threw a fit at the Orlando International Airport on Thursday claimed he intentionally pulled the stunt “to prove a point” about police use-of-force (video below).
“You’re treating me like a f–king black person!” an erratic Dr. Jeffrey Epstein yelled during the arrest, cell phone footage showed.
The incident began at the American Airlines ticket counter just before 6 a.m., after employees called police for assistance with an unruly passenger, the Orlando Sentinelreported.
When Epstein, 59, saw the officers walking towards him, he “threw his hands in the air” and began proclaiming that the “police had come to arrest him,” according to an arrest affidavit.
After removing Epstein from the ticket line, the officers told him that he needed to leave and that he would not be allowed to fly due to his irate behavior.
According to police, the doctor started to “froth at the mouth” as he flailed his arms and hurled profanities at the officers, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Cellphone footage showed Epstein as he hollered about “a soul of rotten, gross garbage,” and told police he was “p–sed off.”
“You get p–sed off, you’re probably a bigger a–hole than you are right now,” he told one of the officers as he wiped the froth from his mouth with his hand.
“This guy is trying to provoke me!” Epstein proclaimed, pointing at an officer standing calmly nearby. “He’s a law enforcement officer, and he’s trying to provoke me!”
“Do you know how to de-escalate things, genius?” the doctor asked with his hands on his hips. “Do you have training, genius?”
Epstein then glanced around at passing travelers before he suddenly raised his hands into the air.
“Come arrest me,” he said, as the officers moved towards him and began to handcuff him.
“They’re arresting me,” he tattled to his onlookers. “They’re really de-escalating.”
As if he suddenly realized the arrest was actually occurring, Epstein abruptly tensed up and told one of the officers not to handcuff him.
He ignored commands to stop resisting, and instead yelled at the officers not to hurt him, the video showed.
“Do not be rough with me, a–hole,” Epstein said, his face just inches from that of one of the arresting officers.
“They’re gonna beat me up!” the doctor squealed, as the officers took him to the ground.
Epstein immediately curled into a fetal position, still refusing to allow the officers to place him into handcuffs.
“Don’t beat me up, you mother–kers!” he yelled. “You’re treating me like a f–king black person!”
Just before the video ended, an officer warned Epstein that he would be pepper sprayed if he did not stop resisting arrest.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the doctor was subsequently pepper sprayed and taken into custody.
He was found to be in possession of a bag of marijuana, and was initially transported to the hospital after he reported he was experiencing chest pains.
On the way, the doctor boasted to one of the officers that he “created a very big disturbance and I did it on purpose,” the arrest affidavit read, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Once he arrived at the hospital, Epstein refused to speak with the doctor, so he was transported to the Orange County Jail.
He has been charged with resisting officers with violence, trespassing after warning, and battery on a law enforcement officer.
After he was released from custody, Epstein told WESH that he intentionally caused the disruption in order to “prove a point” about police use-of-force.
“If you’re going to do this to a white doctor, who’s 59-years-old, for doing nothing, then why would black people trust you?” Epstein asked WESH. “I’m a conservative Republican. I’m a Trump guy. But until the police fix this problem, I don’t blame black people for being upset when they get arrested.”
The doctor said the fiasco was also intended as a teaching moment for the airlines about proper customer service.
“I was no danger. I was being loud because I wanted everyone to see. I wanted everything to be out in the open. Big companies have to take care of their customers, and when they call the cops in, they got to deescalate, not escalate,” the doctor nonsensically explained.
