The news is out: [The Keller police officer who ordered the arrest and pepper-spraying of a man who was filming his son’s arrest has resigned, the police department said Monday.
Officer Blake Shimanek was the officer-in-charge who told another officer to place Marco Puente in handcuffs and pepper-spray him in August. The incident was caught on body-cam and dash-cam videos, and Puente’s arrest made national news after his family filed a civil suit in December.
Monday was Shimanek’s last day with the Keller Police Department, the department said on Twitter.]
Good riddance to bad rubbish. He will be hired by another department.
