Police Body Camera Proves Officer Was Attacked
A fight between a police officer and a criminal was caught on dashcam, and from that angle, it looks as though the officer takes the deatined man down for no reason. The Celina Police Department says they've released that video along with another angle from a camera on the officer's body to show how important body cameras are in proving wrongdoing at the hands of police.
In the body cam footage, the man throws a punch at the officer, which prompts the tackle and arrest.
"Let's be as transparent as possible," said Police Chief Mark Metdker. "We have nothing to hide."
Check out the clip showing both angles below.
