  • FL Sergeant Under Investigation After Video Of Him Grabbing Throat Of Female Officer

    The sergeant, Christopher Pullease, has been relieved of supervisor duties and is under internal investigation by the department after he was caught on body cam grabbing the throat of a female officer and pushing her back against a car after she attempted to de-escalate a situation he was making worse with aggression toward a suspect who was already in the back of a squad car. He became verbally aggressive to the suspect, whom he also threatened with a can of mace. The female officer intervened to try to de-escalate, pulling him away from the suspect by his gun belt, and he turned his aggression onto her, putting his hand around her throat and pushing her back until she ran into another police vehicle.

    Good to see a prompt investigation and suspension from supervisory duties and put on desk duty, and support by the Chief for the officer who was assaulted. Very clear the sergeant needs to be nowhere near the badge - and he's a lawsuit waiting to happen when he snaps further and shoots an unarmed person, beats someone, does something criminal off-duty, etc. (apparently Pullease has had at least two past accusations of excessive force)




    A Florida police sergeant has been relieved of his supervisory responsibilities and is under investigation after he was filmed grabbing an officer by her throat, according to officials.

    Sunrise police shared body camera video of the Nov. 19 incident with NBC News, but the footage was muted with faces blurred, except for the sergeant's.

    Police officers were arresting a "verbally and physically resistive" suspect, accused of a violent felony, when the unidentified sergeant arrived and became aggressive with him, Sunrise Police Chief Anthony W. Rosa said in a statement.

    The sergeant engaged in a verbal altercation with the suspect sitting inside a patrol vehicle and “escalated” the encounter, according to the chief.

    The police body camera footage showed the sergeant ducking his head inside the patrol vehicle to talk to the suspect and holding a can of pepper spray, though he did not deploy it.

    Rosa called the sergeant's behavior “inappropriate and unprofessional” and said he “unnecessarily elevated the demeanor of the suspect."

    A concerned officer ran toward the sergeant and pulled him by the back of his duty belt, Rosa said.

    The video footage shows the sergeant turn around while backpedaling as he was pulled by the officer. He then momentarily places his hand at the throat of the officer and pushes her backward, until her back hits a nearby police vehicle, according to the clip and the statement from the chief. The sergeant then walks away.

    Rosa said the officer who pulled the sergeant was following the department's policies and procedures that call for intervention when there’s “imminent fear of engagements escalating unnecessarily.”

    The police chief said he immediately relieved the sergeant of his supervisory responsibilities after hearing about the incident and ordered an internal affairs investigation that is ongoing.

    The sergeant involved has no contact or supervision over subordinate personnel, Rosa said.

    “I am very proud of the officer involved in this incident and believe that the actions taken were definitive and demonstrative of good leadership during a tense situation," Rosa said.

    He noted that Sunrise officers are expected to "de-escalate emotionally charged situations" and intervene if an officer appears to lose control or display inappropriate conduct in interacting with the public.

    Good to see a police department disciplining one of their own.

    I can't help but wonder if the reason this isn't being covered up is he assulted a fellow officer.

      I was wondering the same.
