Police received information that a large group of children might have been inside a vacant apartment without the owner's permission, according to a complaint affidavit obtained Monday.

Officers detained the group, the affidavit said, but Jacob Saucedo walked off the wall and began cursing at the officer.

The child also said he would leave, according to the document, and refused to get against the wall.

The video recording begins with Jacob Saucedo on the ground.

Moments later, the officer is seen briefly pointing his handgun at the group before holstering the weapon.

Flores and other children are heard hurling more profanities at police throughout the video.

After pointing the weapon at the group, the officer drew a baton as another officer handcuffed Jacob on the ground.

The officer then arrested Julian Saucedo, who was filming the confrontation and handed off the phone to his mother before being taken into custody.

Fort Worth’s police chief expressed dismay Friday over a viral video showing a white officer scolding a black mother who was trying to report that her 7- year - old son had been assaulted — then arresting her and her teenage daughters.

Shocking video shows cop choke , body slam and TASER a student in high school principal's office two years before he 'punched another boy, 14, in the mouth and called him a gay slur'. He choked him with his arm then threw him to the ground to be tasered.

The affidavit, however, said an officer saw Julian Saucedo walk onto the road once his brother had been put in the back of a squad car.

According to the affidavit, Julian Saucedo was told to get off the road.

He did not comply and 'attempted to walk near the patrol unit and behind officers at times.'

The video shows that both brothers were put into the cruiser at the same time.

According to court documents, Julian Saucedo was told multiple times to get off the roadway.

But the video shows the officer who arrested him did not give such an order before approaching the teenager.

The footage does show the teenager being arrested after he is heard saying: 'We're gonna put a report on these two fools. It's all good.'

The affidavit also did not mention that an officer drew his weapon during the confrontation.

Gomez said a complaint affidavit only speaks to the probable cause elements of the offense and the specifics of why authorities are charging a person with a crime.

'It's not a full narrative of the full incident,' he said.
