FAYETTE COUNTY, Texas (KEYE) - A Fayette County deputy is in trouble after a man under arrest recorded the deputy texting and driving.

John Glover was arrested for misdemeanor theft in Fayette County after pawning a stolen item. The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says that the deputy who arrested Glover was "being nice" and allowed Glover to be handcuffed with his hands in front of him after Glover complained that his wrist hurt.

While in the back of the patrol unit, Glover managed to take out his phone and record the deputy texting while driving.

Fayette County says they are aware of the video and the deputy is being disciplined for his actions.

The sheriff's office says they gave Glover the option to file an official complaint, but he has yet to do so.
