Betty Shelby, the former Tulsa police officer who shot and killed unarmed Terence Crutcher, was recently sworn in as a reserve deputy with the Rogers County Police Department, Oklahoma's News 9 reports.
Crutcher’s family and supporters felt that the defense and police union disparaged Crutcher’s name, and presented the press with reports about the officer's past.
A full toxicology and autopsy report wasn't readily available at the time of reporting, according to KOCO.
The Tulsa County District Attorney's office said that Shelby acted "unreasonably by escalating the situation from a confrontation," and became "emotionally involved," according to an affidavit obtained by ABC News.
