Schertz releases officers’ body, dash camera footage of Black teen’s arrest

Schertz officials released new police camera footage Wednesday that shows what happened before and after the arrest of a Black teen seen in a viral video that prompted accusations of excessive force.

Officials said they had wanted to release the footage of 18-year-old Zekee Rayford’s arrest earlier in the name of transparency. They were only able to release the videos Wednesday after receiving authorization from the Guadalupe County District Attorney’s Office.
