DALLAS -- A Dallas police officer who was involved in a controversial 2008 fatal police shooting has been indicted over allegations that he assaulted a fleeing motorist during an incident last November, according to Dallas County court records.
[...]In 2010, Villanueva was disciplined after internal investigators sustained that he failed to devote his entire time to business by sending “unprofessional texts" while on duty.
According to internal affairs records, Villanueva had gotten the phone number of a woman who was witness to a robbery. He then began texting her, asking her if she had a boyfriend, if she wanted him to come over, and telling her that she was “the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen since I got here from L.A.," and that "It’s not a good idea to blow me off.” The woman went to the station and complained.
