Christopher Scott's career as a correctional officer may soon come to an end
Christopher Scott's career as a correctional officer may soon come to an end
April 15, 2013

TEXAS CITY - Texas City Police were called to a Shell station on Palmer Highway to check on an intoxicated man creating a disturbance.  There, officers found Christopher Demonde Scott, 43, whom they determined was indeed drunk.

Placing him under arrest officer D.M Grandstaff reportedly was barraged with insults, curse words and racial slurs.  Scott is black, the officer white.

Scott reportedly challenged the officer's arrest claiming the officer failed to read him the Miranda Warning.  The arrest was captured on the police car dashboard camera.

Scott, who lives in Houston and is employed as a correctional officer at the Jester Four Unit in Richmond, Texas.

Good job Derek! Glad you came back to TC!

A slap in the face of law enforcement. It is sad when law-enforcement representatives result to the name calling, regardless of what side of the arrest one is on.
Yes, thank you for your work, Officer Gandstaff.

This guy is not a 'law enforcement' officer. Prison guards do no enforcement anything except prison rules. They have no authority outside prison walls other than as a citizen.

This isn't surprising at all, alot of them, BUT NOT ALL, are thugs too. Sad thing is, he won't lose his job, or probably even be disciplined for this. Kudos to the officer for not playing in the dirt with him. Sounds like he just needed an ant popsicle to call him down.

Not that it was required, but if Scott knew about the Miranda Warning, why should he be advised of it? Raylan is correct. The difference between some correctional officers and the inmates they watch is, at the end of their day they get to go home.
