Former State Trooper Faces Charge

fox4assault Former State Trooper Faces Charge Arturo Perez faces a misdemeanor assault charge and is set to appear next month in court.

Video from his dashcam shows Perez slamming a woman’s face into a concrete divider on the Dallas North Tollway near Lemmon Avenue.   Her attorney says Whitney Fox was not drunk and not physically resisting, and that Fox
crashed into the wall after a drunken friend she was driving home grabbed the wheel.

In the video, Perez handcuffs the woman before he begins walking her toward his vehicle.  She struggles and Perez slams her into the wall.

The incident happened a year ago and Perez retired shortly thereafter.
