CONGRESSWOMAN Maxine Waters intervened during a traffic stop involving a Black driver to ensure cops were doing their job properly.
The officers were in the process of detaining a Black man, prompting her to immediately hit the brakes and hop out of her car, according to TMZ.
Waters’ presence was apparently not well received, as she said the sheriff’s deputies told her she was illegally parked and was in danger of getting a ticket.
A short clip of the moment made its rounds on Facebook after Marva Brown shared the video on her page.
Waters explains to the person filming that she was curious to see what officers were up to once she realized they had stopped the Black man.
“They stopped a brother, so I stopped to see what they were doing,” she told the cameraperson.
“They said I’m in the wrong place and that they’re going to give me a ticket,” she continued.
“That’s okay as long as I watch them.”
“Gotta do what they gotta do! Make sure!” a woman can be heard saying off-camera.
The congresswoman then waves at the person filming the video before he bids her goodbye.
