Ex-WWE superstar Velveteen Dream exploded on an officer over his Miranda rights during an arrest earlier this year … hurling f-bombs at the cop and calling him a “rookie” repeatedly — new police video, obtained by TMZ Sports, shows.
The footage was captured on officer-worn body cameras on Aug. 20 … after the Orlando Police Dept. said the wrestler — real name Patrick Clark — bit and punched a gym employee following an altercation at a fitness facility in Orlando, FL.
The video shows as soon as cops put Clark in cuffs — he immediately became combative … demanding they allow him to speak with his lawyer. When they wouldn’t, he threatened to sue.
The 27-year-old — who left the WWE in 2021 after starring in NXT — yelled so much from the backseat of the patrol car, the cop turned up country music loudly … but that didn’t slow down Velveteen Dream.
“This is crazy!” Clark said. “This is crazy! I work for the WWE! This is crazy!”
Clark — who admitted in the video to being “a little inebriated” — then said he was not read his Miranda rights before he was arrested … and proceeded to go ballistic on the cop about it for several minutes.

“Hang up your f***ing phone, sir!” Clark said. “I was not given my Miranda rights! You f***ed up! You f***ed up, sir! I was not given my Miranda rights, so go ahead and bring me to your motherf***ing station, you f***ed up!”
Clark screamed about his Miranda rights the entire ride — and when they finally got to the police station … he continued his verbal tirade.
“How’d you f*** up the Miranda rights, sir?!” Clark said while cuffed. “What are you, a rookie?! What’re you, a rookie?! Oh! We got a rookie on deck!”
Clark was eventually booked and released … and later hit with two misdemeanor charges of battery and trespassing on a property after warning.
Court documents show the case was disposed in September … after the alleged victim said, according to the docs, he “did not wish to prosecute.”
Velveteen Dream had appeared to be angling for a WWE comeback in the weeks leading up to the arrest, posting on his social media page about a potential return.
