Question by Countess Jodhaa Bai : Did this police officer overstep his duties as a police office & and as a step-father? A San Jose, Calif. police officer could face criminal charges after he handcuffed and pretended to arrest his stepdaughter’s boyfriend when he learned that the two had had sex.
The boyfriend, 15, might also be in legal hot water. The stepdaughter is 14.
The phony arrest was caught on tape, reports CBS News Correspondent Priya David Clemens.
The officer claims he faked the arrest to send a strong message about underage sex.
But now, authorities are trying to determine whether his actions were that of an overprotective father — or a police officer who seriously misused his power.
The grainy cell phone video, obtained from the San Jose Mercury News, shows the police officer admonishing the boy– their identities have been concealed.
The teen is seen being handcuffed and told he’s under arrest.
The officer is heard saying, “not a good thing that the person you had sex with is a cop’s daughter.”
The video was shot by the boy’s father, who can also be heard admonishing his own son, saying, “Use your head. Think about what he’s talking to you about” as the officer threatens the boy with criminal charges “for having sex with a minor.”
