Dash camera video obtained by News Center 7 previously through a public records request shows the moments leading up to Bucci’s arrest.

In the video, Bucci can be heard telling police he was an officer with North Hampton Police Department.

“He’s got his gun on him. He can’t even talk straight at all. He’s got his gun on him. He’s an off-duty cop,” a Centerville officer radios into dispatchers.

He was taken into custody.

Bucci’s current status with North Hampton Police Department is not known.
