Houston Chief Testifies Against Former Officer

May 08, 2012  | 

Houston's police chief testified Tuesday that he was "very disturbed" by videotape showing one of his officers accused of beating a teenage burglary suspect.

Andrew Blomberg, 29, is the first of the four former Houston Police Department officers to stand trial in the alleged attack that was caught on video. He is charged with official oppression, a misdemeanor, reports Click2Houston.

"I believe a crime had been committed," Chief Charles McClelland told the jury. "I saw HPD officers conducting themselves in a manner that was against training, policy and state law."
