Police officer uses racial slur after being pulled over for DUI

An Arizona sheriff’s deputy used a racial slur and told another officer to not put his “f***ing career at risk,” after he was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Body camera footage shows Pinal County Sheriff’s Deputy Julian Navarrette imploring officers to let him off. He was pulled over last December after an Arizona State University police officer saw him speeding and swerving in Tempe, just east of Phoenix.

The body camera footage shows an ASU officer out of view confronting Mr Navarrette about drinking and driving.
