AUSTIN — An Austin police officer thought he was protecting the public, but was instead punished for his actions. He chased down a robbery suspect while off-duty.

This is video of off-duty Officer Jonathan LaBorde running out of his church in South Austin. Minutes earlier he was in a meeting when he saw a bloody man run down the hallway.

"His first thought was that somebody had robbed the church, they'd just finished church services and there was cash there," said Austin Police Association President Wayne Vincent.
