Baltimore Co Police Investigation Into Officer Behavior on Video Continues
Updated: Wednesday, February 26 2014, 10:44 PM EST
A police investigation into Baltimore County officers continued Wednesday evening after a profanity-laced incident between a student and Baltimore County-trained officers was caught on videotape on Sunday morning.
While it appears some involved were Baltimore County police officers, one at the end of the video who appears to assault the student taping an arrest seems to be an unpaid, unarmed auxiliary officer. Recording police in public without interfering is not illegal.
At one point the auxiliary officer says, “Do you see us all? We're not f****** around. Do you understand? Do not, do not disrespect us. Do not not listen to us."
Sergio Gutierrez shot the video, because, he says officers were getting aggressive with a female suspect.
Police chief Jim Johnson on Wednesday called the actions "inappropriate" and "unnecessary.” The auxiliary officer in question has been a volunteer for 22 years. The department says his street authority has been restricted, though he can still volunteer with the department in an administrative capacity.
Gutierrez has not filed an official complaint.
