Florida Man Calls Black Cops The N-Word, Demands White Police Officer

A white man is facing a slew of charges after he called two Black police officers a racial slur and demanded a white cop for a police report, according to local news station WPLG.

Mark Geltzer, 61, allegedly showed up at the South Miami Police Department with a gun after he hurled racial slurs at two Black personnel, including a recently-hired police officer and a veteran detective, authorities claim.

This all began back in July when Geltzer was accused of arguing with a 17-year-old fast food cashier. Police say he admitted to calling her a "useless n-word" in body camera video. The suspect later arrived at the police department to report the fast food worker for spitting on him, but cops called his accusations baseless.

“He wasn’t happy about that, he comes to our station here demanding to get a white officer,” Assistant Police Chief Charles Nanney told reporters. Things escalated when Geltzer got aggressive with the senior dispatch manager.

"He gets into an argument with her over getting a new officer and calls her the n-word," Nanney explained. The 61-year-old man was told to leave, and if he came back, it would be considered trespassing.

Then came Friday, September 30, where Geltzer was caught on camera pulling up the police department again in footage obtained by WPLG. He demanded changes to the police report from July and went into another racially-charged tirade.

“He calls our senior Black detective the n-word,” Nanney alleges. After his racist rant, reporters say Geltzer got into his car and tried running over a police officer before driving away. Police tracked the suspect back to his father's home, where he was arrested.

Geltzer's now facing several charges, including battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, and driving under the influence. He's since bonded out of jail.

Nanney, fearing for his employees' safety, also made sure some of them got an escort home Friday night.
