A Santa Fe police officer accused of using excessive force when he arrested a taxi driver just after midnight last month has resigned from the department.
No criminal charges have been filed against the former officer, Jose Gutierrez, but dashboard camera footage of the arrest taken from his patrol car shows at least one inconsistency between what the department has reported about the incident and what was captured on video.
