FORT WORTH, Texas — Screaming, kicking windows and cursing; it’s behavior all caught on camera inside a Fort Worth police patrol car last month.
The person in handcuffs and behind the outbursts is Andrew Peterson. The Saginaw police officer resigned February 5 after allegations of abuse toward customers and officers surfaced during his public intoxication arrest at a Fort Worth hotel on January 26. Peterson was off-duty at the time.
The video shows Peterson, 26, mumbling his words and lashing out at officers. Saginaw police previously said the rookie’s behavior embarrassed the city and the department.
