Incident Type: Clovis Police Administration Investigating Arrest And Use of Force During August 2014 Traffic Stop
Contact Person: Steve Sanders, Chief of Police, (575) 763-9416
Clovis, NM – September 17, 2014 – Clovis Police Administration and Supervisors have been reviewing a Use of Force Report,
Arrest Reports and accompanying incident video in an on-going preliminary inquiry of use of force since early August stemming from an August 3, 2014 traffic stop and arrest by a Clovis Police Officer.
Based upon the preliminary inquiry and recommendations of police supervisors through the chain of command, which has been on-going since the incident occurred on August 3, 2014, a formal Internal Affairs Investigation has been initiated by the Office of Professional Standards to investigate if any Clovis Police Department Policy, Regulation or Procedure has been violated in the case by the Officer involved. The Clovis Police Officer involved in the arrest and use of force case was placed on limited duty and removed from working in the public until the conclusion and outcome of the formal investigation.
The investigation into this matter was initiated internally in August by the Officer’s chain of command of supervisors after routine review of the Officer’s daily incident reports and use of force reporting. There has been no complaint received from the arrested party in this case.
All allegations of misconduct are taken very seriously and thoroughly investigated by the Clovis Police Department, whether a potential issue is discovered internally or received from a citizen complaint. The appropriate action is taken regardless of the people involved. As with any investigation, it takes time to conduct a fair and impartial investigation while abiding by constituted law and department policies. New Mexico State Statute, Article 14 – Peace Officer’s Employer-Employee Relations Act, 29-14-1 through 29-14-11, dictates the rules about how a peace officer is to be treated by an employer when under an investigation for an administrative matter and that Officer’s rights, roles and responsibilities under the Act.
Due to the personnel issues involved, there will be no comment made about the on-going internal investigation until a thorough investigation has been conducted and an adjudication of the investigation has been completed.

That video was hilarious! I have to agree with you, although funny, it does make some valid points. Although, the Op's video does show the police officer throwing the guy to the ground when the guy wasn't resisting the arrest.
