MEDFORD Stephen LeBert is a roadside bully.

..

Actually, hes worse than that. Hes a bully with a badge and a gun. And his days as a member of the Medford Police Department must be numbered. Its hard to imagine Mayor Michael J. McGlynn welcoming him back to the police force after what he did on High Street here on Sunday night.

..

LeBert is the police officer excuse me, a [expletive] Medford detective who encountered motorist Michael A. Coates in a rotary here, when a confused Coates entered the rotary the wrong way, nearly hitting the off-duty LeBert head-on, according to the officer.

..

LeBert then tailgated Coates, 25, with his high beams on, Coatess lawyer said, before the 30-year police force veteran dressed in shorts and a white T-shirt angrily confronted Coates.

..

What happened next is not exactly what they teach you at the police academy.

..

Ill put a hole right through your [expletive] head, LeBert, enraged and out of control, said during the encounter captured by Coatess dashboard camera. Pull your car over. Ill put a hole right in your [expletive] head. Ill put a hole right through your head.

..

What a great guy, just the officer youd like your wife or mother or your niece or nephew to see after theyve made a mistake behind the wheel.

Medford Mayor Michael J. McGlynn says he is shocked by the actions of a Medford police detective who was captured on camera last weekend, allegedly saying that he could put a hole in the head of a motorist.

..

In a statement issued Tuesday, McGlynn said he supports Medford Police Chief Leo Saccos decision to place Detective Stephen LeBert on administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation.

..

The words and behavior of the officer as shown on that video go far beyond the acceptable standards of behavior of a police officer, McGlynn said in the statement. I was fully shocked and saddened by the detectives statements and his demeanor directed towards the driver.

..

LeBert was off duty at the time of the episode.

..

The motorist posted a recorded portion of the episode on YouTube shortly afterward, and it quickly drew attention around the Boston area.

..

..

LeBert wore a T-shirt and shorts. There were no police markings on his pickup truck, a personal vehicle.

..

LeBert reaches into his rear pockets and a side pocket as he walks toward the car, according to the video. The driver backs away, leaving LeBert in the middle of the street, holding what the chief said appeared to be his wallet badge in his left hand.

..

LeBerts right hand is down by his side.

..

Ill put a hole right through your [expletive] head, LeBert says in the video. Pull your car over. Ill put a hole right in your [expletive] head. Ill put a hole right through your head.

..

The driver tells LeBert that he did not know he was a police officer, then he pulled over.

..

..

In his statement, McGlynn said that as the mayor of Medford for 28 years, he believes the vast majority of Medford police officers carry out their duties professionally and with courtesy to the public.

..

Previously, LeBert has been admonished by superiors after he was videotaped in 2012 episode blocking the camera of a man recording as Medford police officers interacted with his brother.

..

In that video, LeBert also tells the man that his brother should lie down in front of a train to end his substance abuse problems.
