A 38-year-old man was caught at the camera and pulled a gun out of his pants while he was in the back of a police car in Toronto.
The police insisted they pat the man on the shoulder and put him in handcuffs before he sat down in the back of the cruiser.
But in the video that was leaked by the Toronto police, the man can be seen wandering around trying to pull the gun out of his waistband or pock it.

After finally ejecting it, the man manages to get the weapon between his legs and at some point he seems to hold the firearm firmly, but then drops it on the floor of the vehicle.
The police say that while they brought the suspect to the station, officers heard the noise of an object that hit the floor.
Cops decided to stop their car and only when they opened the back doors of the patrol car did they see the semi-automatic gun on the floor, right in front of the suspect.
The firearm was picked up by officers and the suspect was searched for the second time before being taken to the police station to be booked.
In the beginning it seems to be a struggle, while the suspect, Ali Shobeg, 38, is being wound around

Ali Shobeg, 38, from Mississauga, Ontario near Toronto, is facing nine charges, including eight firearm-related charges.
"The safety of our officers and the public is of the utmost importance to the Toronto police," Chief Mark Saunders told the Toronto Sun..
& # 39; Our officers run risks every day in their work. In this case, a call for a suspected disturbed driver resulted in several firearm-related charges against a person who allegedly concealed the firearm during police arrest.
& # 39; The officers investigated the accused and the gun was not detected. The incident is being investigated to determine whether this is a training or a disciplinary issue. & # 39;

Mike McCormack, president of the police association, also praised the work of the officers involved.
"I think it's a chilling reminder that there is no such thing as a routine traffic stop or routine arrest," McCormack told City news. & # 39; Here is someone who has been arrested for an unrelated crime and this could have been so much worse. & # 39;
There is also a separate investigation going into who has the & # 39; evidence in the camera of the car & # 39; leaked to the media.
Chief Saunders said sharing the video & # 39; a clear breach of the protocol and procedure & # 39 ;.
Toronto Mayor John Tory called the episode & # 39; disturbing & # 39 ;.
& # 39; You do not want to think that someone in a police car or anywhere else has a gun, especially after being searched, & he told reporters at a press conference and reported by CTV.
& # 39; It is a matter for the police to find out how a search can happen and a gun can still remain in the prison of a suspect in a police car and I am looking forward to see what comes out and what recommendations find out how things like that can be avoided, because it would certainly have put the officers at risk, let alone the public, if that person had that gun, which seems to be the case. & # 39;
& # 39; Officers investigated the accused and the gun was not found. The incident is being investigated to determine whether this is a training or disciplinary issue, said Chief Mark Saunders
