Last month it was announced that Texas State trooper Brian Encinia had been indicted for perjury in the death of Sandra Bland. Following the indictment, the Associated Press reported Encinia would be terminated from his post, but he wasn’t until now. Yesterday the Department of Public Safety officially fired Encinia and he is facing a fine as well as jail time. Hit the jump.

A Waller County grand jury indicted Encinia after it found out he lied about what happened when he pulled over Bland on July 10, 2015. Encinia pulled Bland over after she failed to signal during a lane change. According to Officer Encinia, Bland was “combative and uncooperative,” but the jury didn’t believe a word of it. Encinia also said he removed Bland from her vehicle in order to continue with the traffic investigation, but that was again also proven to be false.

Unfortunately for Encinia, dash cam footage from his police car showed the true story. He is seen to be yelling at Bland screaming “I will light you up!” while pointing a stun gun at her. Encinia arrested Bland and she was found hanged 3 days later in her jail cell. Her death has been ruled a suicide. Encinia now faces a $4,000 fine and a year in jail, but it won’t add up to the life that has been lost.

Encinia’s letter of termination reveals he might be able to appeal it. We’ll see how this plays out now.
