Video vindicates officer after social media post accuses him of assaulting panhandler

Video footage cleared an officer of any wrongdoing after a Facebook post accused the LEO of assaulting a panhandler.

The officer’s supervisors reviewed dash cam footage of his encounter with the panhandler and found that he did nothing wrong. On Jan. 10, a Facebook post accused the unidentified officer of assaulting a man panhandling near a highway.

The post alleged that the officer took the man’s coffee cup and threw it into the roadway before shoving the man against a vehicle and removing his coat in the cold weather. The post, which has now been deleted, included a photograph of the officer talking to the man.

But dash cam video shows the entire exchange between the officer and the panhandler. The officer was questioning the man and later found out that he had an outstanding warrant from another state.
