After being arrested for DWI, an Albuquerque, New Mexico woman accused an officer of sexually assaulting her. Luckily for the officer, the whole thing was captured right on camera and the suspect was shown to be a liar to the whole world.
It all started when Deanna Griego was arrested for driving while intoxicated. After she had been taken to the police station, Griego asked if she could use the restroom.
The arresting officer, Jared Frazier, heard the woman speaking on a cell phone and instructed her to come out. Griego had hidden the phone in her bra, and the phone was taken from her.
That’s when Griego began making accusations that Frazier innappropriately touched her in the back of her squad car.
According to KOB4,
But when Griego asked for medical attention, Frazier called EMTs.
“Basically the whole thing’s on video,” he tells the paramedics. “She’s accusing me of touching her.”
APD says a sex crimes sergeant and detective conducted a full investigation and cleared Officer Frazier of the allegations.
APD union president Stephanie Lopez released this statement about the incident:
“The desire to frame officers for wrongdoing is a growing issue facing officers every day. We believe that the public should be held accountable for filing false reports against police officers. These incidents can be very damaging to an officer’s career, so we hope that this individual and others face appropriate consequences for their malicious actions.”
