BOISE -- An investigation into a video showing an intense encounter with a Boise Police officer has concluded.

The Boise Police internal investigation came after a video showing a confrontation with a female Boise Police officer went viral earlier back in October.

Professional photographer Gavin Seim says he happened upon a traffic stop and started filming.

Seim says he was across the parking lot and out of the way when the officer first approached him. That is when an argument began over his rights to film.

This week, an internal investigation concluded the officer's behavior did not live up to the policy and expectations of the Boise Police Department.

Boise Police Chief Michael Masterson says the matter has been addressed consistent with internal disciplinary procedures.
