Fox News reports that officials are not sharing any footage of the arrest because it could “jeopardize” an investigation.
The California Highway Patrol denied a public documents request for bodycam and dashcam footage on Thursday.
According to Fox News, CHP stated, “The Public Records Unit (PRU) has determined the Department possesses records responsive to your request,”
“However, the Napa County District Attorney’s Office has advised the release of records would jeopardize an ongoing investigation. As such, records are being withheld pursuant to Government Code section 6254 (f).”
