Security Guard Filmed Cops Struggling With Suspect as Officers Pleaded for Help
The guard was later fired.
An arrest at a Texas gas station was caught on camera, but as things turned aggressive between authorities and the suspect, a security guard at the scene appeared to ignore the situation.
On Tuesday night, two Houston cops were in a serious struggle with a suspect at a gas station who appeared to be resisting arrest.
Several bystanders pulled out their cellphones to record the encounter, including a security guard.
“Stop f***ing taping and help me,” a cop was recorded telling the guard. But she continued filming.
Joe Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officer's Union, spoke to Inside Edition about the incident.
"She was completely oblivious to everything that was going on there," he said. "As a security guard you go through training, you wear a uniform, you wear a badge, she should absolutely be ashamed that she didn't even call 911.
"At the very least, she could have called for her officers and get them some help out there and she did nothing."
The security company she works for fired her after seeing the video.
The 17-year-old suspect in Houston was finally cuffed and arrested for attempting to disarm a police officer.
