Body cam footage shows missing NJ man in police custody

Video obtained by FOX 5 NY shows missing 41-year-old Felix De Jesus interacting with police just before his disappearance.

The two pieces of body camera video that were made public are from February 3, 2022. They show De Jesus asking officers “Why are you arresting me?” as he is taken into custody.

De Jesus’ family says he had initially disappeared the day before and says that police in Paterson, New Jersey initially denied interacting with him.

The family then took matters into their own hands, putting pressure on officials, protesting, and looking for clues. They say they figured out that De Jesus was intoxicated the evening of February 2 and went to a convenience store not far from where he lives in the neighboring borough of Haledon.

The video begins in the store and shows officers struggling to get De Jesus inside the police car.
