Killeen Police Respond to Arrest Video
Killeen, TX (December 20, 2021)
The Killeen Police Department is aware of a video circulating via social media in which a subject was arrested for interfering with or obstructing an officer. On December 18, 2021 at about 12:40 a.m., Killeen Police officers conducted a traffic stop and subsequently arrested the driver for an outstanding warrant out of Lawton, OK for Discharging a Firearm into a Dwelling. Investigating Officers learned that there was a weapon inside the vehicle and were trying to determine if any other laws were being violated.
While conducting their investigation, they were approached by an individual who interjected himself into the investigation by engaging with other individuals in the vehicle, distracting the officers, and creating a safety hazard for all involved parties. The subject in question was arrested and charged violating Sec. 16-107 (Interfering with or Obstructing an Officer) of the City of Killeen Code of Ordinances.
The Killeen Police Department Code of Conduct requires our officers to preserve and protect the individual rights and freedoms of citizens. Due to the public interest in this incident, we will be conducting an investigation into the matter.
