Camera captures former Huntsville Police officer bruised by sergeant

New video shows a former Huntsville Police officer who claimed she was fired for accusing her sergeant of sexual harassment and abuse hurt by another officer during an office retirement party.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — New video shows a former Huntsville Police officer who claimed she was fired for accusing her sergeant of sexual harassment and abuse hurt by another officer during an office retirement party.

It happened in February of 2017. Video given exclusive to KHOU 11 News shows former Huntsville officer Kimberly Webb knocked down then holding her right arm.

According to medical records, Webb’s right arm bruised after her sergeant used a foot sweep that made Webb fall on a desk. Video showed the man demonstrate the move after the fall.

“But that doesn’t make it an assault,” Walker County District Attorney David Weeks said.

Weeks saw nothing to file charges last year.

“If I reject it, it’s rejected,” he said.

Weeks still sees nothing to change his mind.

“You’ve got to have an intentional act (to file assault charges) and I just didn’t see it,” Weeks added. “It certainly didn’t appear that she was injured as I recall from the actions. Nobody else in the room took it that way didn’t look like.”

In Webb’s federal lawsuit filed earlier this year, she accused the city, its police department and police chief of firing her in retaliation for complaints she made against the same sergeant seen in the video.

Webb claimed the man made sexual advances and physically abused her. Her lawsuit specifically mentioned the February 2017 fall.

Webb declined interview requests. It is unclear how the public release of the video affects her case. However, Weeks is not losing sleep.

“It certainly didn’t appear that she was injured,” he said.
