Fort Worth, TX (WMC) - Fort Worth, Texas police are investigating one of their own after a video surfaced on social media that shows one of their officers spraying a yellow liquid at bikers. You can watch the video here:
Posted on Facebook and Youtube by someone named Chase Stone, the video includes the caption "MUST WATCH!!! This is how our law enforcement chooses to "protect and serve."
The video appears to have been recorded by a GoPro camera on a rider's helmet. Slowed down and zoomed in, you can see the spray in the officers hand and the liquid come out of the can. According to reports obtained by Dallas NBC affiliate KXAS, "the traffic stop took place Sunday at about 3 p.m. along the 1500 block of U.S. 287/Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway and that the driver of the pickup, Brittany Botella, and her passengers, "were cited after they were blocking traffic to rocord [sic] motorcycles driving recklessly." The report lists the officer's name as W. Figueroa."
