A California woman was videotaping an arrest in a Los Angeles suburb recently when a rifle-toting police officer charged towards her and destroyed the recording device. Now federal authorities say they’re investigating the incident.
In the 53-scond clip, a woman is seen holding what appears to be a small camera or cellphone in front of her face, with the police activity occurring around 15 feet in front of her. Halfway through the recording, an officer with a rifle in tow rushed towards the woman and reached for the device.
A loud noise is audible as the officer smashes the camera on the ground and boots it away. He was then filmed walking away from the scene as the woman went to pick up what was left of her device.
The officer that rushed towards the woman has been identified as a member of the United States Marshals, NBC reported. A spokesperson for the agency told the television network that the video “is being reviewed.”

A Santa Maria (California) police officer suspected of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl was shot and killed Saturday by a fellow officer as he was about to be arrested, authorities said.
The officer, who has not been identified, was near the end of his shift at a DUI checkpoint when supervisors arrived after 1 a.m. to detain him, Police Chief Danny R. Macagni told reporters at an afternoon news conference. There was a struggle, the suspect officer drew his weapon and fired his gun; a fellow officer then shot the suspect in the chest, Macagni said.
“He chose to resist,” Macagni said. “He drew his weapon. A fight ensued. He fired his weapon. And one of my officers that was there also discharged his weapon and the officer was fatally wounded.”
