EL PASO, Texas — A dash-cam video that will be used in a court case supposedly shows El Paso police officers planting a baggie of cocaine during a traffic stop.

The controversial patrol-car video was filmed two years ago during the arrest of Ernesto Adrian Burciaga, who pleaded guilty to a cocaine possession charge and now claims that the drugs were planted by police.
