The Saint Paul Police Department is disputing a viral social media claim that one of their officers, Jacob Pederson, was caught on camera breaking out windows at a Minneapolis Auto Zone Wednesday shortly before it was lit on fire.
A viral video shows a mysterious man in all black with an umbrella and pink gas mask smashing windows at the Auto Zone just before it was lit on fire on Wednesday evening. A protester confronted the man, who became hostile and quickly walked away while being asked if he was a cop.
On Thursday evening the Twitter account @GypsyEyedBeauty tweeted out a series of screenshots that claimed the man is Pederson. The caption read, “Here are screenshots from his ex wife confirming this is him, along with his photo.”
