Wild video shows cops pulling guns on Yankees GM Brian Cashman

Yankees GM Brian Cashman’s harrowing run-in with gun-toting Connecticut cops — in which they demand he put his hands up before recognizing him — was captured on newly released police bodycam video.

“Put your hands out the window!” yells an officer from the town of Darien, who stopped the Bombers executive’s car last Friday and drew their weapons, thinking it had been stolen.

Cashman, 52, his heard on the recording trying to explain that the NYPD had recovered the white Jeep Wrangler in the Bronx — and he was driving it to police in Norwalk for an evidence check.

“I picked it up…,” Cashman starts to say.

But he is quickly cut off by the cops, who say: “Understood sir, we’ll talk to you in a second.”

“I know but it was taken off by the NYPD a few day ago,” the GM says, apparently referring to the list of stolen cars.

Unfortunately one of the cops recognized him.

“Hey, this is the guy dat traded Shane Greene for Didi Gregorious.”

“Arrest him! He is a thief!”

this happened to me once after i reported a plate stolen and drove around with the remaining plate on the back of my car. it was kinda scary until they realized i was the guy who owned the car, and then i ended up being late to my eye appt.

You needed an eye appointment after getting pulled over? What did you say to that cop!?!

Yes, I’m totally available for Bar Mitzvahs!

Lucky for him he's not Kenny Williams. Does not turn out as well, I'm sure.

And then there was that tragic incident when police mistook Gabe Kapler for a baseball manager...
