A police sergeant in Florida has been demoted to desk work after he was seen on video grabbing a fellow officer by her throat.
Authorities in Sunrise, Florida shared body camera footage of an incident that took place November 19.
Everyone in the video had their face blurred except for Sergeant Christopher Pullease, 46, a 21-year veteran of the force.
Sunrise police were detaining a suspect who was 'verbally and physically resistive' when Pullease came on the scene and got aggressive, Chief Anthony Rosa said in a statement.
Pullease then got into a verbal altercation with the suspect, who was already sitting inside a police car.
Body camera footage shows Pullease ducking his head inside the car to talk to the suspect while holding a can of pepper spray.
Rosa said that Pullease was 'inappropriate and unprofessional' in the situation and added that he 'unnecessarily elevated the demeanor of the suspect.'
A fellow officer - who has not been identified but has been on the force two and a half years - ran toward Pullease and pulled him by the back of his duty belt.
Video shows Pullease turn around while backpedaling as he was pulled, then momentarily putting his hand at the other officer's throat and pushing her backward until she hits a nearby police car. Pullease then walks away.
According to Rosa, the second officer was following Sunrise police's own policies and procedures for a situation where there's 'imminent fear of engagements escalating' between officers and suspects.
Pullease has been taken off his supervisory duties since the incident. Internal affairs is investigating, with Rosa calling his behavior 'disgusting.'

Oh my. Some officer safety issues here possibly.
This kids, is why women are not allowed in the mafia. You cannot trust them to turn on you.
This happened all the time before everything was video recorded.
Two year chick, 21 year vet, and she launches on him. She’s smart and knows that’s a great way to get on the fast track to be a chief or something.
Say what you want, every other cop on that department knows not to ever trust her again.
We really do not know why she pulled the other officer away.
I do not trust the press to give us the real story.
The stress on that job must be absolutely insane.
Yeah, it did. And you could walk around in safety because the scrotes were scared of the cops. Funny how cop-chick knows all the answers.... except of course, how to make the scrote put his legs in the car and quit resisting.
There’s video. She was standing off to the side looking pissed like she had just been ineffective and that Sergeant made her get out of the way so he could handle it. Then she RUNS a circle to get in behind him and grabs him.
Ten to one she was sucking and being ineffective, and when told to GTF out of the way, her little ego got hurt. So she turned rat.
Yeah, and when that happens the bald guy is goin' ta be livin' IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER !!
> Sunrise police were detaining a suspect who was ‘verbally and physically resistive’ when Pullease came on the scene and got aggressive... <
De-escalation is often the best way to handle a volatile situation. It looks like this cop doesn’t quite understand that.
If the suspect was already inside the police car, no reason for Pullease to continue to cuss him out.
Apparently lots of the comments here were from those who were in attendance. Glad to hear their comments......
He put his hands on her throat just like Bobby Knight put his hands on a player’s throat.
Suspect is already detained and in a car. Sergeant Friendly grabs a can of pepper spray and starts antagonizing the person IN CUSTODY.
I’ll wait to see what REALLY transpired here, but it does not look too good for the sergeant from the information available
“Pullease then got into a verbal altercation with the suspect, who was already sitting inside a police car. “
The Fem cop saved the city from a mult-imillion $ lawsuit - for spraying police grade MACE on a handcuffed ‘suspect’ in the back of the car...
Skinhead pig would be the politest tag found in the local press....
And ya, the cat is as good as fired. I’m sue IA will find a pattern in his past behavior.
They shouldn’t be on the job
She did the right thing. Too bad somebody didn’t intervene with Chauvin. Chauvins action led to billions for the BLM movement.
Yes, the male cop clearly lost his temper. We don’t know what extenuating circumstances might have led to that, perhaps she had been giving him a hard time. Who knows?
