Albuquerque police officer Daniel Guzman “overstepped his boundaries” when arresting KOB videographer Rick Foley in May, stated KOB-TV in paraphrasing the judge.
Therefore, Judge Benjamin Chavez had no choice but to drop all charges against Foley.
Foley, a veteran videographer, was charged with disobeying a police officer after an arrest that was caught on video and viewed around the world on the Internet.
Now Guzman, who has been on paid administrative leave, will face a disciplinary hearing next week, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
