Former Victoria Police Officer Nathanial Robinson has a new job with the Beeville Police Department, according to a Corpus Christi news station.

Robinson was fired in December after dash cam footage showed him stopping 76-year-old Victoria man Pete Vasquez, throwing him toward the ground, using a stun gun on him and later arresting him.

He was fired from the Victoria department after violating its police conduct, use of force and arrest policies and procedures.

A grand jury decided not to indict Robinson.

Beeville Police Chief Joe Trevino said Robinson won't immediately be placed back on the streets, KIII-TV reported. The 23-year-old will go through a 12-week training program, which will include learning department policies and procedures, and retraining on using tools and weapons, the chief told the TV news station.
