Two Colorado police officers were given one-day suspensions Wednesday, according to KDVR-TV, for their part in leaking body camera footage showing the Denver mayor's son threatening a cop in a profanity-laden rant.

Let's see this footage!

Jordan Hancock, the 22-year-old son of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, was pulled over March 23 for being clocked going 65 mph in a 40 mph zone.

The video from Officer Paul McClendon's body camera shows the policeman's exchange with Hancock during the traffic stop.

When McClendon asks why the vehicle is registered to Michael Hancock, Jordan told the cop, "Because that's my motherf***ing dad."

Hancock then clarifies, "My dad's the mayor, you b***h."

"Mayor of what, Denver?" McClendon asks.

To which Hancock responds, "Yeah, don't worry about it, b***h."

McClendon tells Hancock, "Well, you're in Aurora, bud. He isn't the mayor of Aurora."

Hancock then threatens the officer, saying "Yeah, exactly, well guess what, I'm about to get you fired."

Since Hancock was also driving without a license, McClendon told him he would need to take a photo of him. At that point, Hancock yells at the officer, "You ain't taking my picture. B***h, my dad's the mayor, you f***ing f*****," using a gay slur.

KDVR reporter Rob Low posted part of the video on Twitter, showing some of the young man's sass:

So, what's the problem with the leak?

Officer McClendon showed the footage to fellow Officer Paul Timmons, who recorded the clip with his cellphone. Timmons passed the video to Officer Judy Gurley-Lutkin, who in turned showed it to her husband.

It's unclear who actually leaked the video, but Timmons and Gurley-Lutkin were each suspended for one day for their involvement. The department did not issue any disciplinary action against McClendon.

According to KDVR, the mayor's office claims Jordan Hancock has personally apologized to McClendon and paid the $275 speeding fine.
