Cop Seen Beating, Pistol-Whipping Suspect At Traffic Stop Via Dashcam
A dashcam video shows a Dallas police officer punching and pistol-whipping a suspect he stopped for a traffic violation after a chase.
Officer Rene Villanueva has been fired and is also facing criminal charges of Official Oppression and Assault.
It all stems from an incident in November when Villanueva was reportedly working an off-duty job and a suspect, Ambrosio Monsavais, bumped an off-duty deputy with his truck. Records shows Monsavais led the Villaneuva on a nearly two-mile chase.
