Outrageous Video! Police have investigated after receiving video of a police officer pepper-spraying bikers as they passed by in Texas.
Cpl. Tracey Knight, a spokeswoman for the Fort Worth Police Department, said they received a link of the video by email on Monday morning. The video was then forwarded to the internal affairs unit.
On Monday the cop was identified as Officer W. Figeuroa and he acknowledged using pepper spray on the passing motorcyclists and documented the incident in a report.
The reason Figeuroa gave for discharging his pepper spray has not been disclosed.
Figeuroa has been placed on administrative duties pending the outcome of the investigation, the department said.
A Medstar ambulance service spokesman said five people were treated at the scene for exposure to pepper spray and one man was hospitalized with minor injuries.
