New Mexico police officer scuffles with TV photographer
A report from KOR.com says a TV photographer was detained for 90 minutes after scuffling with an Albuquerque police officer.
“An Eyewitness News 4 photographer was cuffed and cited Thursday morning for disobeying a police officer. It was a situation where the photographer was trying to do his job. And now the Albuquerque Police Department is reviewing the tape to see if the officer crossed the line.”
“Video of the incident shows one of the officers walking away, looking at the photographer, and then walking out of frame while the other officer drives away from the scene.”
“The photographer then began to put his camera in the news vehicle to move to the media staging area when the officer begins circling around.”
“The two scuffled for a short time, and then the photographer was handcuffed and detained for about 90 minutes.”
This video is from KOR-TV Albuquerque, broadcast May 29, 2008.
