Fort Pierce Police Officer Doug McNeal was recently suspended for 20 days without pay for failure to follow policy, conduct unbecoming an officer, neglect of duty, failure to follow body worn camera procedures, unauthorized [lack of] restraint devices, improper prisoner/detainee transport operations, and failure to follow his department's "special transport situation" policy, handcuff policy, and tobacco policy.
I could explain exactly what happened here, but there is really no need. You see, although McNeal violated the department's body worn camera policy, he still managed to capture three hours of footage showing ALL of the above violations on video.
This video provides a comprehensive overview of the incident, from start to finish — including a complete copy of the internal affairs investigation report at the end.
