An internal affairs investigation is under way against an El Paso police sergeant who arrested a television news crew covering a major highway accident.
Sgt. Raul Ramirez arrested Channel 7 reporter Darren Hunt and photographer Ric Dupont as they covered the crash involving an overturned big rig on Interstate 10.
Police commanders later released the newsmen when they were brought to the station. Watch Dupont's video of the arrest and see if you think the officer was justified or if he over-reacted. Notice how the officer goes past the other people stopped on the median out of curiosity and singles out the news crew, even physically grabbing the video camera and putting it on the ground.
