An arrest at a Texas gas station was caught on camera, but as things turned aggressive between authorities and the suspect, a security guard at the scene appeared to ignore the situation.

On Tuesday night, two Houston cops were in a serious struggle with a suspect at a gas station who appeared to be resisting arrest.

The article goes on to state the following:

Several bystanders pulled out their cellphones to record the encounter, including a security guard.

“Stop f***ing taping and help me,” a cop was recorded telling the guard. But she continued filming.

Joe Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officer’s Union, spoke to Inside Edition about the incident.

“She was completely oblivious to everything that was going on there,” he said. “As a security guard you go through training, you wear a uniform, you wear a badge, she should absolutely be ashamed that she didn’t even call 911.

“At the very least, she could have called for her officers and get them some help out there and she did nothing.”

DML News offers the following additional information, published by KHOU.COM:

HOUSTON — A viral video of a suspect resisting arrest when a Houston police officer tried to handcuff him has cost a security guard her job, according to the President of the police officer’s union.

The guard was seen in the video taping the incident with her cell phone instead of helping the officer. That infuriated a lot of people including HPOU President Joe Gamaldi who called her a “disgrace.’

The article goes on to state the following:

“I contacted security company that employed the security guard. They handled the issue swiftly, she is no longer employed w/the company,” Gamaldi tweeted.

Davon Miller, 17, was arrested and charged with disarming a police officer. He also faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
