"caught on camera: bad behavior." welcome to "caught on camera." i'm contessa brewer. bad behavior can sometimes seem like an epidemic, from road rage to bullying over the internet to fist fights on reality tv. our first video is a prime example of bad behavior. a mob erupts in violence, and not out of anger or frustration, but to celebrate the home team's victory. [ chanting ] >> mayhem in the streets of los angeles. june 2010. 19-year-old student and part-time graphic designer jun
2:02 pm
gatuna ducks into a downtown bar to watch the last moments of the nba finals. the los angeles lakers versus the boston celtics. >> i just wanted to see what was going on, see if the lakers won or not. and if they did win, i just wanted to see how the victory celebration went. >> the final score, lakers 83, celtics 79. in game seven, the lakers ç clinched the title, and gatuna heads toward the arena. >> the atmosphere was very energetic. a lot of people were shouting celtics suck, lakers won, lakers won. i headed to staples center because i heard from a lot of friends that that's where a lot of crowds were forming. and once the lakers won, you know, a lot of people got excited, and i just decided to head on home. >> but on his way home, gatuna encounters an unruly mob. >> i caught a bunch of people
2:03 pm
surrounding a taxi, and it seemed kind of interesting because they were pushing the taxi back and forth, and so i decided to take out my camera and start recording the event. >> the mob had pulled the taxi driver from the car and soon, the jubilant celebration turns into pandemonium. >> when it first started, everyone was just excited, and they were just showing a lot of emotion. not really violent, but the taxi incident, people were very violent. people were very rowdy. >> as gatuna watches through his camera lens, the bad behavior escalates. a man writes "stoner" on the taxi's hood while others punch and kick the vehicle. >> they're shaking the taxi back and forth. some people come and they throw objects at the taxi, kick the 9 doors. one gentleman came with a knife, slashed the tires. one gentleman came with a skateboard, beating the taxi's window. some people were actually digging inside the taxi and trying to see if they could get something, some sort of money or property they could steal. >> one man tries to smash in the
2:04 pm
windshield while others kick the cab and cheer. the pack of vandals begins to grow, and gatuna catches the bedlam on his camera.ç >> once the crowd saw what was going on and what was going to happen to the taxi, a lot of people jumped in and started doing some acts of their own. they were jumping on top of the taxi, stomping the roof down, stomping the front glass, shattering it. one gentleman got his leg caught in the glass because he made a hole in it. people were just going insane. >> but then the volatile situation gets even more out of control. >> the crowd was chanting burn it up, burn it up, and from that point, a gentleman yelled, does anyone have a lighter, hand me a lighter. someone offered him a lighter. >> give me a lighter! >> so the young gentleman received a lighter from one of the members of the crowd. he lit up a flammable object, he
2:05 pm
tossed it into the passenger's side of the taxi. from there, he threw a bunch of paper and foreign objects into the taxi to help the fire grow, and once the crowd saw that happening, they joined in. they threw in plastic cones, you know, anything they could find on the street to help the fire grow. once that happened, the fire just literally consumed the taxi. >> gatuna spots the shaken taxi driver, abraham tafari, standing beside the vehicle just off camera. >> as one of the gentleman starts the fire and tosses in a lot of objects to make the fire grow, you can see abraham tafari trying to go in and reach for his license and documents, things that belong to him inside the taxi. >> the taxi driver doesn't own the car, but watches as his only source of income goes up in smoke. >> just from looking at the cabç driver's face, you could tell he was very scared, shocked, you know. he just couldn't believe it. at one point he told me, you know, i came to this country to work, you know, why does this have to happen to me. >> as the fire roars, gatuna looks on in disbelief.
2:06 pm
>> i can't believe this is happening. i live so close. this is something that's so shameful. >> still filming from about 50 feet away, gatuna is amazed by the vandals' apparent pride in what they've done. >> when the taxi was on fire, people were still on top of the taxi getting ready to take photos, thinking that this was some sort of event that they have to share. i'm just hoping that no one catches on fire. fire did come very close to a few members of the crowd. people from the crowd were telling them to back off because the fire was just getting bigger and bigger, consuming everything. >> oh! oh! run! run! >> the crowd breaks up when they hear sirens approaching. >> there is a bunch of police right across the street from the incident, so they're coming towards the taxi, you know, trying to disperse the crowd, and from that moment, i knew that they were going to start shooting at us with pepper spray. >> to avoid getting gassed,
2:07 pm
gatuna runs and hides behind a parked car. >> i continued filming the event, and in the video you can see police officers shooting and tear gas exploding. >> with the taxi completely engulfed in flames, gatuna walks over to the driver standing nearby. >> he was looking at the ground, bewildered by what happened to him. you can tell from his face he was very scared ands&ocked. >> gatuna provides a copy of his footage to fire investigators and also makes the video available to local news stations. >> i was hoping that the video would catch a lot of attention and hopefully, you know, open up a lot of hearts and help the taxi driver out. >> and help, it does. >> the owner of the staples center did get to see that video on the news, and from that, he awarded abraham tafari $10,000 to help him pay his bills. >> tim krass, an arson investigator for 20 years, examines the charred car at the scene. >> there was nothing in the front seat that would have
2:08 pm
started the fire accidentally. based on that, we determined the fire was intentionally set. >> krass and his partner head back to the fire station and watch gatuna's videotape to see if any suspects can be identified. >> we could actually see who it was, the individual that set the fire, and several other individuals had contributed to this. >> the investigative team releases a picture of the main suspect to the media, looking for leads. >> the individuals involved haven't been identified yet. we did receive a few tips, but none of them panned out. >> according to the los angeles police department, nearly 40 arrests are made throughout the city. gatuna laments the black cloud hanging over what should have been a day of peaceful victory celebration in his hometown. >> once the victory's brought to our city, a lot of people were just excited and needed to get some excitement, emotion out. some people do it the good way,ç
2:09 pm
and some people do it the bad way, and i think the bad way, those kind of people are the ones who ruin it for everyone. coming up, a bridal brawl. >> he put his head in my stomach and then he pushed me. he hit my back here in this showcase. and -- >> ow! what are you hitting me for? >> officers on the beat behaving badly when "caught on tape: behaving badly" continues. commitment to support scientists studying the environment. and the gulf is open for business - the beaches are beautiful, the seafood is delicious. last year, many areas even reported record tourism seasons. the progress continues... but that doesn't mean our job is done. we're still committed to seeing this through. constipated?

2:13 pm
search high and low for the perfect dress, and each year, thousands line up with their friends for one chance to snag the ultimate gown at bargain basement prices. and they're off! the strategy is simple. run as fast as you can and start grabbing. pull as many dresses as you can carry before other ladies on the hunt steal away your favorite designer. the scene is chaotic. dresses flying, snatching, shouting, hoarding brides-to-be pile up their poofy wares while friends protect their stash. and when the stakes are this high, tempers can flare, with brides behaving very badly. at the end of the day, most shoppers head home with a smile on their face, but sometimes during the quest for that tr(h&ittle wedding ballistic. case in point, what happened in this bridal shop in detroit, michigan.
2:14 pm
hekmat has owned and operated the first lady bridal shop for more than 25 years, but it wasn't until march 2010 that he truly met his match. >> that bride was annoying from the beginning, but we cope with it. this is our business, and we have to treat everybody, you know, fairly. >> the bride had purchased a wedding dress from him. after several fittings, she returns to the store for her gown, but there's one small problem. >> she wanted to take the dress without paying the balance remaining on the dress. i told her dress cannot leave the store unless you pay for it in full. >> he says the irate customer refuses to pay on the spot, but promises to bring him the money the next day. >> i said, look, we cannot give you the dress unless you pay the money. so she went outside and she came back with a credit card. >> but the credit card is not hers, and he will only accept cash.
2:15 pm
>> she became more agitated, louder, and she says i'm going to call police and so on and so forth. i said, go ahead, call the police. so she went outside and called the police. >> according to him, the police give the woman a simple choice. lay the money down or drop the gown. >> they went home. two hours later, they brought the money. we gave her the dress, wrapped it and wished them well, and they left. >> but the ve) next day, the bride is back for more alterations. >> she came in with another five, six of her sisters, sisters-in-law, close relatives, and so on. >> at first, he is accommodating, but the bride-to-be and her wedding party all demand immediate attention in a store full of other customers. >> i told her, look, you are taking over the store, demanding alteration. yesterday, you called police on us for no apparent reason. it was unwarranted. now we're not doing any service anymore for you. you need to take your dress and
2:16 pm
go, do it somewhere else. i don't need this business anymore. >> after the bride exits the store, he says her bridesmaids begin to bad-mouth him in front of other customers, and then the threats start flying. >> her sister-in-law started shouting, oh, you don't know who we are, you cannot throw us out, and i call my husband to come and teach everybody a lesson here. you know, all this crap. >> he asks the wedding party to leave, but they refuse, and the stand-off begins. >> my son was there, and i told him call the police, and make sure you lock all the doors down so nobody can come in. >> as he and his dissatisfied ?l customers wait for the police in lockdown, three male relatives of the bride arrive on the scene. >> she was in communication with the three men. so when the three men arrived here basically behind this door and she was talking to them and she just opened the door because this door does not open unless somebody opens it from here.
2:17 pm
they came in straight from the ç door to the counter. my wife was there with another five, six customers around her. i had no idea what was going on. >> his son rushes from the back of the store. >> and he said, hey, hey, what are you doing? everybody out. you need to go out. >> but in the blink of an eye, with security cameras rolling, a bridal brawl erupts. >> those three people, they just jumped on him and put him down. >> the three men would later say they didn't start the fight and were forced to defend themselves against the man's aggressive son. however the brawl began, in the scramble, he says his wife is slapped and knocked down. >> i tried to pull one of them and now this lady, here's the guy who throw us out. >> with merchandise flying, one of the men tackles him, slamming him into the display counter.
2:18 pm
>> he put his head in my stomach, and then he pushed me -- he hit my back here in this showcase and i fell over there. >> in another part of the store, mannequins dressed in formal attire are used as weapons. losing his shirt in the scuffle, his son tries to move the melee out of the showroom. another flustered customer dials 9-1-1. >> she called the police. she said, oh, my god, a man is hitting a woman here and this and that, and now the police called them outside while they were trying to flee. he stopped everybody, pulled his gun, this and that. we had another three, four ç police cars immediately. they surrounded the place. >> police interview everyone on scene and turn to the videotape. >> we explained to them what happened. they explained what happened, and they reviewed the video clip and saw all the shots. >> police arrest the three men and haul them away.
2:19 pm
he and his son are left with substantial injuries. >> i suffered two fractured bones in the backbone, and a black eye, a little bit of concussion to the head. my son also suffered concussion and went to hospital. he was checked. >> patruce is shaken by the violent confrontation, but working in the wedding business for many years, he understands how the situation got so out of control. >> when the wife called her husband, tell him, oh, if you don't come and kill this guy, you are not a man. well, what is this poor man supposed to do? she made it sound like she was under attack or she was getting killed or something like that. that's how she sounded to him. >> with broken fixtures and torn dresses, damages to the store total more than $20,000. to avoid trouble with borish brides in the future, patruce
2:20 pm
has made a few changes. >> i have instructed all my employees the minute we feel or see a potential problem, we don't want that customer because we don't want to cope with these problems. >> the accused are each charged with two counts of assault and battery, but claim they are theç victims, attacked by patruce's son and forced to fight back. in january 2011, a jury finds all three men not guilty. coming up -- strike! cops on the clock hit the virtual lanes. and -- >> get off him! get off him! >> a battle on the bus when "caught on camera: bad behavior" continues. if you made a list of countries from around the world...

2:26 pm
government or for a city agency in new york, that they can do whatever they want. >> according to jimmy, many officers tasked with enforcing traffic and parking laws are also breaking them. >> the same people who write these tickets have these placards they put in the windshield of their cars that identify them as traffic cops, as police officers, as court officers. then they use these parking placards illegally. >> april 2009. jimmy justice is on patrol in brooklyn, new york. >> i notice a vehicle with a police department placard in it parked at a fire hydrant, and ç that raised my suspicions. >> jimmy breaks out his camera and starts recording. >> so i waited a couple of moments, and then i see an off-duty police officer with his wife and kid holding shopping bags coming out of a store and getting into their car. they had gone shopping, personal shopping, while he was parked at a fire hydrant, endangering the

2:29 pm

2:30 pm
