GPD: Can’t give up Tenorio reports, video

Posted: Jul 12, 2018 11:45 AM Updated:

The Guam Police Department has denied a KUAM News request for incident reports and video involving an incident in which Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio grabbed a SWAT officer’s loaded weapon out of its holster Saturday night at Tumon’s BBQ Block Party.

In a response to a Freedom of Information Act request KUAM News sent Monday morning, GPD Chief J.I. Cruz said giving us documents and surveillance video would “interfere with enforcement proceedings.”

Cruz cited a law, classifying the information we requested as “investigatory records complied for law enforcement purposes.”

Although KUAM News was able to obtain some surveillance video of the incident, we have confirmed there is another video detailing Tenorio trying to take Cruz’s gun several times after he initially removed it from the holster. Incident reports complied by GPD officers on the scene - as ordered by Chief Cruz - would have provided valuable insight into what really occurred Saturday night.

As reported on KUAM News, Tenorio justified his grabbing of SWAT officer Sgt. Carl Cruz’s weapon from its holster, saying as overseer of public safety, he has a reponsibilty to ensure the public is not in danger. KUAM News confirms Tenorio was drinking beers at the event. The Lt. Governor apologized numerous times yesterday - but still maintained what he did was justified since he was acting in his capacity as head of public safety on Guam. Tenorio admitted he had “2 or 3” beers.
