EL PASO, Texas -- The El Paso Police Department will launch an internal investigation into an officer's conduct after a doorbell camera recorded a verbal confrontation between that officer and a 24-year-old man.
The video, shared with ABC-7 by Ruben Garcia Jr., appears to show the officer shouting at him after he said he didn’t call police to report an incident involving a neighbor.

"To see your child threatened in that manner, especially from a police officer, is unsettling," said Ruben Garcia Sr., whose son was involved in the incident.
According to the video time stamp, the altercation happened on Nov. 23 when police arrested 26-year-old Zakary Frampton, a Fort Bliss soldier.
Video provided by Garcia Jr. to ABC-7 shows Frampton running up and down the street, seemingly naked, and screaming.
"KVIA has made the department aware of a situation involving an officer’s interaction with a witness of a heinous crime," wrote Sgt. Kiki Carrillo, a spokesman for El Paso Police in response to the video. »
