He allegedly urinated on private property, and when the victim’s wife saw the unknown vehicle parked on the property from her window, she went outside to investigate.
When the alleged victim’s wife went outside, she saw Brown urinating and demanded to know what he and his partner were doing on their property.
Brown allegedly told her to “Stop looking.”
The cop and his his partner got back in their car and started driving away.
Then, the alleged victim got in a golf cart and drove toward the officer, stopping next to the car as it was pulling away.

The whole thing was allegedly captured on surveillance video.
