'Cook the Macaroni in Your Pantry': Buffalo Cop Uses Loudspeaker to Tell Driver to Go Home

A police officer patrolling Buffalo, New York, after a deadly blizzard was seen following an SUV and using her loudspeaker to tell a driver to go home on December 26 amid a driving ban.

Hassan Siddiq told Storyful that he was walking to the store when he witnessed the peculiar scene. In the footage, a white car is making its way through the heavy snow, a police vehicle following closely behind.

“Why are you out on the road?” a voice can be heard saying from the police loudspeaker. “There is a driving ban … You don’t need to go to 7-Eleven. Cook the f***ing macaroni in your pantry.”

Siddiq said that he started recording when the officer talked because “it was just funny to me,” he said.

Storyful reached out to the Buffalo Police Department for comment on the video, but did not hear back by the time of publication.
