Officer Pacheco, who was on hand to assist with crowd control, asked Ramírez to leave the store after he ‘became belligerent with Walmart employees when they announced that only five PS5 consoles [were] left to be purchased,’ the police incident report said.
Video footage shows Pacheco escorting him out of the store after he attempted to incite the other shoppers and refused to leave. Aguilar, with her baby son in tow, reached for Ramírez’s arm in a move to stop the cop from detaining him.
Once outside, Aguilar confronted Pacheco all while holding on to her son before the cop fell to the ground. The officer attempted to arrest Aguilar.
Subsequently, Aguilar’s father Fredie Aguilar allegedly stepped towards Pacheco and grabbed her by the collar to stop her from detaining his daughter before punching the officer in the face.
However, Valeria Aguilar insisted that the officer lost her balance and fell to the ground.
