Albuquerque police officer Daniel Guzman – who made international headlines in May when he arrested a TV news cameraman on video – has been fired.
The story first popped up on an Albuquerque blog called Eye on Albuquerque. I later confirmed it with KOB-TV investigative reporter Jeremy Jojola, who said his station confirmed it three hours earlier.
Guzman, according to Jojola, was fired Thursday.
The notorious video, where Guzman is shown arresting KOB-TV cameraman Tim Foley, is below. Charges against Foley were dropped a month later.
