Officers accused of unprofessional behavior have made headlines this week in Tarrant County.
Officer Disraeli Arnold, a four-year veteran of the Hurst Police Department, was fired this week for an incident in November in which he was videotaped cursing and threatening a teen he was arresting.
Assistant Chief Steve Niekamp said Hurst officers are expected "to take care of business, but also do it professionally and not use threats and profane language. That's not what happened this time."
In Fort Worth, Chief Jeff Halstead was ourtraged that another one of his officers was busted for DWI -- this time Nicolas Ramirez on Wednesday. Ironically, the officer was a DWI enforcement officer.
Since 2008, 14 officers have been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. Halstead faced a similar headline last month when his chief of staff was arrested on suspicion of DWI.
On Thursday, the chief declared he was beyond frustrated.
