officer pulled up to their house in full uniform after his shift ended, berated and warned the boy to stay away from his stepdaughter and handcuffed him and told him he could face sexual assault charges. later the officer unlocked the cuffs telling the boy's parents he just wanted to scare him. legal analyst dean johnson said the officer should have given it to another investigator. >> if it's not technically a crime, if it's not say assault under color of authority, at the very least it was an unwise move. >> the boy's stepfather video recorded some of the encounter on his cellphone and later reported the incident to san jose police internal affairs. they interviewed the boy and cited him for a misdemeanor, unlawful sex with a minor. the daughter was also cited. the officer was essentially invited to use scare straight tactics and there were no
objections to the lecture or the handcuffing. everything was done in the spirit of reaching a troubled young man who was heading down the wrong path. well, the names of the teens' parents are being withheld to protect the identities of those minors. the district attorney's office is reviewing to case to see whether they will file false imprisonment charges. theresa garcia, abc 7 news. >> thanks a lot. it's 6:05. employees of a hayward auto parts store will spend time cleaning up as a car crashed through their front door. take a look the at the damage done near mission boulevard. around 10:30 last night, a woman lost control of her car crashing through the store front on jackson street. the store was closed and no one was inside at the time of the crash. firefighters had to pull the driver out of the car. she was taken to the hospital to be evaluated. no word on the extent of her injuries or whether the store
