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.
APD says a driver and officers had exchanged gunfire at Copper Avenue and Rhode Island Street NE. An Eyewitness News 4 photographer covering the incident approached two police cars.
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.
“I’m not putting the camera down until (inaudible),” the photographer told the officer as he was approached.
The two scuffled for a short time, and then the photographer was handcuffed and detained for about 90 minutes.
