An inquisitive 12-year-old who called out a Las Vegas cop for parking illegally and caught the whole thing on camera has reached Internet stardom for the second time.

The video, uploaded to YouTube in September, made the Internet rounds again this week after it was reposted to Reddit on Sunday.

In the clip, 12-year-old Jeremy questions a Las Vegas motorcycle cop who parked on the sidewalk while stopping for a beverage at a Terrible Herbst gas station.

"Is there a reason for you to park on the sidewalk, is it like an emergency or anything?" Jeremy asks the officer. "Can I see you badge number?"

"Why?" the officer asks.

"Because I have the right to," the boy responds.

"What're you, a junior lawyer," the cop says, brushing Jeremy off. "No, I just want to see your badge number," Jeremy coolly replies.

The cop, with a jumbo-sized soda in hand, avoids Jeremy's request, revvs up his bike, and asks to see an ID. Since Jeremy is only a minor and doesn't have ID on him, the officer accuses the kid of loitering and drives away.

The video sparked a heated debate between those who felt the interrogation was justified and those who thought Jeremy was just being a brat.

"I don't care that he parked there, every job has its perks, but he did not need to be a jerk to that little boy," one person commented on the YouTube video.

"Parking on the sidewalk isn't a perk of the job," another wrote. "Cops have to obey the same laws, including when it comes to parking, that any other citizen does."

"This kid did nothing good but start trouble to try and look cool," someone else posted.
