Baytown police officer Nathaniel Brown was terminated from his position Monday by Police Chief Keith Dougherty following an Internal Affairs Division investigation. The investigation was prompted by an incident in which Brown arrested two men on a Disorderly Conduct-Language charge—an arrest that was caught on video and which the arrestees alleged used excessive force.

Police spokesman Lt. Steve Dorris said, “After careful review, Chief Dougherty concluded that the actions of Officer Brown did not align with the professional standards and values to which we hold all of our officers. Therefore, on Monday, July 20th, Officer Brown was relieved of his employment with the Baytown Police Department.”
