“Just because I have a handgun on me and a license to carry should not be a big deal, but that is what made it the turning point.” It’s hard to come to any other conclusion based on the report and the dashcam footage (click the image above to view the whole thing). After calling for backup, the Rosenberg, Texas officer tells Alonzo Gonzalez he’s being cuffed and taken in for “fail(ure) to signal your STOP sign” and having “an obstructed view on your windshield through the driver’s side.” . . .
Guess you don’t have to do much in the Houston exurb to be hauled to the hoosegow. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that an internal investigation of the arrest cleared Officer Anthony Schnacky. Or that no one in the Rosenberg PD would talk to a reporter about what happened.
Mr. Gonzalez has filed a complaint against the department, but he’s probably not holding his breath waiting for a favorable outcome. Here’s a tip: watch your ass in Rosenberg, Texas.
