Houston police launch investigation after officer caught on camera taking pictures of woman's behind at Drake concert
The Houston Police Department confirmed that they had started the internal investigation against the officer, who was not identified
Houston Police Department has launched an internal investigation after one of their officers was caught on camera secretly photographing a woman's behind at a Drake concert. The incident happened on Tuesday night at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
The video was taken by a concert-goer, Chalice Williams, who happened to notice the grey-haired police officer taking sly pictures of the woman — who had no idea this was happening — on his cell phone while he was standing to the side of the dance floor.
The officer then can be seen scrolling through the pictures that he had taken of the woman's butt and apparently looked like he was admiring it; all the while the woman was standing only a few yards in front of him at the time enjoying the concert.
Williams said she was "stunned" after she caught the officer red-handed. She claimed that the officer had been zooming into the woman's behind before she even had a chance to start recording. A second clip shows the sneaky policeman admiring the images, reported the Daily Mail.
The video, which was uploaded on Twitter, went viral with more than 10,000 retweets and 24,000 likes.
Williams said she caught up with the woman and told her what the officer was doing, but she laughed it off. However, it is no laughing matter for the Houston Police Department which confirmed on October 3 that they had started an internal investigation against the officer, who is yet to be identified.
A spokesperson for the department said in a statement: "We are aware of a video that shows actions of one of our officers at a concert last evening. Although HPD has not received a formal complaint, we have launched an internal investigation."
