KINGWOOD, TX (KTRK) -- An off-duty Houston police officer is the subject of an internal investigation after a family claims he broke into their home while chasing down a teenager. The family says it happened Friday in a neighborhood in Kingwood.
Witnesses on Quiet Glade Court tell us they watched that barefoot off-duty officer chase the boy down the street. Now the teen's parents are demanding some answers, and action.
The glass on the front door is broken, and the people living here say you can still see an off-duty officer's trail of blood around their home.
"He put his face to the window and then he punched a hole in the window so he can see through it and then he just opened the door," said Matthew Pifer.
Why is this news station not identifying the officer? That's important information. It's not like they're legally obliged not to release it. I've certainly never seen the police give anyone they accuse of a crime the same courtesy.
