Texas Officer's Body Camera, In-Car Camera Capture Two Angles of Violent Arrest

Texas Officer's Body Camera Captures Two Angles of Violent Arrest

The police chief of Celina, Texas, says after using body cameras for nine months, the investment has been a success.

"Our officers know that when they step out of the vehicle, everything they're doing and saying is being documented," Chief Mark Metdker told NBC DFW.

"I think the future of policing is transparency," he added. "Let's be as transparent as possible. We have nothing to hide."

Following that logic, the department released a video on its YouTube channel within the past week of an arrest at an alleged domestic disturbance where, police said, an officer was assaulted.

According to the department, it initially appears from the angle of the dash camera video that the officer jumps on the subject for no reason.

However, from the angle of the officer's body camera, it appears the man throws a punch at the officer's face before he is wrestled to the ground, subdued and arrested.

How'd they get cameras. This is a tiny town ~6000 people. Good for them.

ps They are hiring.
