A Socorro City Councilman is demanding an investigation, following an incident with a man, who appears to be a detective.

On his blog, Councilman Jesse Gandara Jr. posed some questions and posted pictures about the incident, which looks to involve men from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.

It appears that Gandara was taking pictures of a detective and a man in uniform, when another man got out of his vehicle.

The man apparently walked up to Gandara and put his hand up in front of his camera.

In a police report, Gandara filed he says the man "Squeezed his hand causing him pain."

On his blog Gandara asked, "Who are these people and what were they doing in Socorro? Was there any directive to these men to behave aggressively?"

We contacted the El Paso County Sheriff's Department and spokesman Jesse Tovar said the incident would be discussed at a town hall tonight.

We'll let you know what happens.
