An El Paso (TX) police officer has been relegated to desk duty after reports that he drew his service weapon and pointed at a group of children, according to ABC News.
A video — which was uploaded to an individual’s personal Facebook page — appears to show the officer “pushing one of the boys against a wall with his knee while the other boys taunt the officer and hurl profanity at him,” said ABC. The boys recoil and the officer quickly re-holsters his gun.
The El Paso Police Department said on Saturday they had launched an internal investigation of the incident.
