Dallas Police Officer Robert Powell, who delayed NFL player Ryan Moats from seeing his dying mother-in-law, has resigned from the Dallas Police Department. It was likely that Powell would face termination or severe punishment over the incident recorded on his dashcam.
Powell issued the following statement:
“With a heavy heart and great sadness, I resigned from the Dallas Police Department this morning. I made this decision in the hope that my resignation will allow the Dallas Police Department, my fellow officers, and the citizens of Dallas to better reflect on this experience, learn from the mistakes made, and move forward. I still hope to speak with the Moats family to personally express my deep regret, sympathy, and to apologize for my poor judgment and unprofessional conduct. I also want to apologize to my fellow officers. I have sincere respect and admiration for the men and women of the Dallas Police Department and the work they perform daily, and I wish them well.”
