Lapel video released in Albuquerque traffic stop
Video reveals what happened in the moments before man's testicle was shattered
Albuquerque, NM (KOB) — Albuquerque police have released video of an arrest that ended with the loss of a suspect's testicle.
NBC affiliate KOB requested lapel video from arresting APD officer Pablo Padilla, but the station's request has not been fulfilled.
However, the police department did turn over the officer's lapel video to political action group Progress Now New Mexico, and KOB obtained the organization's copy.
On April 24, University of New Mexico law student Jeremy Martin was pulled over for running a stop sign on Campus and Wellesley near the north side of the UNM campus.
The video shows Martin being pulled over, and being asked out of the car. Padilla asks Martin to sit down on the curb, which he does.
At one point, Martin stands up and walks into the road.
