A city-employed security guard in Albuquerque has been exposed as a violent, out-of-control thief with a long history of disciplinary problems who is protected by the city’s police force.

Andy Fitzgerald is a transit security officer working out of Albuquerque’s main bus, a man who not only doesn’t like being referred to as “just a security guard,” but doesn’t appreciate citizens video recording his violent antics. He also has a history of shoplifting, but that only earned him a warning from city officials last year advising him to “act more professionally both on and off duty,” [2] according to Police Complaints, an Albuquerque police watchdog site, who broke this story [3] last month.

In August, Fitzgerald choked a man who began video recording him arresting on another man, telling the man with the smartphone, ”I’m about to unleash on you. Do not fucking move.”

The man with the smartphone had irked Fitzgerald by telling the man he was arrested, who was accused of drunkenness, that Fitzgerald is not a cop, but just a security guard.
