Exclusive Story from Police Complaints Reported on Local News

From the story by KRQE News, Police oversight group blasts APD

An oversight group is accusing Albuquerque Police of making a very illegal arrest and they’ve posted the video online to prove their point.

The group ‘Police Complaints of Albuquerque’ claims the man was arrested for openly carrying a gun which is legal in New Mexico, but the department says the group isn’t telling the whole story.

The video surfaced on YouTube last week and so far it has had more than 460 views.

KRQE did a good job on the story and obtained some interesting comments from APD. The police department says we didn’t tell the whole story. But they also say they’re now investigating the arrest to make sure everything was done correctly. When they finally watch the entire video and compare it to the claims made in the criminal complaint, they’re going to have to decide what to believe.
