In one instance, Socarras was filmed in October 2010 drinking coffee while allegedly ignoring an emergency dispatch call about an unconscious 5-month-old baby. Gonzalez, Socarras’ supervisor, was sitting at a restaurant table with him when he ignored the call, according to internal documents from the investigation obtained by ABC News.
He got the call at 5:36 p.m. about the unconscious boy. He wrote in his daily activity report that he “arrived and cleared the call at 5:42pm,” according to the documents. But the surveillance video shows him at the restaurant having coffee and “making no attempt to respond to the call for a total of six minutes,” until he was cancelled from the call at 5:42 p.m., the documents allege.
Hours before, Socarras ignored an armed robbery dispatch call and was spotted with his arms wrapped around a woman outside a mall, who met him numerous times while on the job, according to the documents.
He was seen with the woman – described as his girlfriend – in the parking lot of the mall for more than half an hour from 3:22 to 3:56 p.m. while on duty, the documents allege. The call came in at 3:46 for an armed robbery.
Another unit from “a location substantially further from the robbery responded,” according to the documents, while Socarras stayed with the woman. He later allegedly falsified his daily activity report, saying he arrived as backup at 3:48 p.m., the documents say.
