Gadi Schwartz, a reporter at KOB in Albuquerque, has been issued a subpoena to reveal how he obtained dash-camera video that led to the firing of two police officers last year.

The video Schwartz obtained while reporting shows the takedown and subsequent arrest of Michael Schaefer in a Walmart parking lot. The video was the subject of an internal investigation within the Albuquerque Police Department, and as a result of the investigation, two police officers were fired and two more were disciplined.

An attorney for KOB told the Albuquerque Journal that Schwartz obtained the video “in the course of performing his duties as a reporter from a confidential source.”

Watch the video after the jump.
