A police officer in Houston, Texas, was attempting to arrest a suspect and received no help from a nearby security guard, despite his pleas for help.
17-year-old Davon Shavelle Miller was pulled over for allegedly driving a car connected to an aggravated robbery and shooting when he tried to flee the scene.
The officer pursued Miller, chased him down, and tackled him to the ground. Miller then continued to resist the arrest.
“Stop grabbing my cuffs,” the officer can be heard saying.
A woman nearby screamed for him to stop. “Stop resisting” and “it’s not worth your life” she yelled.
“He’s trying to kill me!” Miller yells back.
“No he is not, stop resisting,” she replies back.
An unidentified man attempted to help the officer and a woman dressed in a security guard uniform can also be seen recording the incident on her phone.
Watch it all happen in the video below.
Miller then appears to grab for the officer’s gun, which escalates the situation even further. “I didn’t grab his gun!” Miller yells.
The security woman then circled around the scrum with her phone, not assisting the situation in any way. “Help me!” yelled the officer. “Stop f---ing recording and help me!”
Miller was later arrested and charged with a felony for disarming a police officer due to his attempt to take the officer’s gun as well as aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
“This guy is absolutely a threat. He had a pistol in his car that his girlfriend actually wrapped in a towel and threw it in the bushes while our officer (was) fighting with him,” Joe Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officers’ Union.
The security guard who filmed instead of helping has reportedly been fired.
"Update to the story that has been making the rounds the past 2 days. I contacted security company that employed the security guard," tweeted Gamaldi. "They handled the issue swiftly, she is no longer employed w/the company."
