Enraged Texas Cop Punches and Breaks Elderly Couple's Windshield for no Reason

The state trooper has been suspended and the department offered to repair the windshield.

The Texas state trooper who punched the windshield of a car driven by an elderly couple, causing it to shatter probably believes he had every right to do what he did.

After all, he has been trained to believe everybody is out to kill him.

But he has since been suspended and the Department of Public Safety agreed to repair the windshield, according to ABC 13.

The incident took place in Richmond Saturday as Francisco Montemayor, 81, was driving his 75-year-old wife to lunch when they drove by the trooper who had somebody pulled over.

It was a narrow two-lane road with no shoulder so that probably made the cop fear for his life.

According to ABC 13:

"(The) DPS trooper had somebody pulled over, traffic was going slow because it was congested in that area," (couple's daughter) Creek recalled. "(The) DPS trooper made a gesture to my dad to slow down. (My) dad was already coming slow. He was moving over when the DPS trooper stepped out."

That's when her mother claims that without warning, the trooper fired a punch into the passenger side of the front windshield.

"He took his fist and he hit my parents' car," Creek said. "Literally."

She says her mother opened her door and apologized to the trooper, then asked about their window.

They say the trooper's only reply was, "F***ing go."

The 75-year-old woman was left with shards of glass on her clothes and hands. Glass had also fallen all over the seat and floorboard.

The cop's name has not been released.

ABC13 Eyewitness News spoke with a DPS supervisor as he visited the family's home Monday, checking on the couple and their car.

He admitted the trooper was responsible for the broken windshield and said an internal investigation is underway.

The supervisor says they are working to fully replace the windshield.

In addition, DPS sent ABC13 Eyewitness News the following statement:

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) takes complaints like this very seriously. After learning about this incident, the department took immediate action based on preliminary findings. The Trooper involved is being suspended pending the outcome of an investigation by the DPS Office of Inspector General and the Texas Rangers.

It is too bad that the Trooper did not break every bone in his hand!

I know the officer, he is no pig. He is a man, an outstanding citizen, a loving husband, and a great father to his children.
This is sad. The window should be paid for - but don't go after the man, and get all of the details. Put yourself in the situation - I am sure i would have hit the window too if saw this car too close and about to strike me.
