Utah official ‘apologizes’ after video reveals him pressuring police to release lawfully arrested son

A San Juan County Commissioner is “apologizing” after bodycam footage revealed him pressuring police to release his lawfully arrested son.

“It appeared to me that [Bruce Adams] was trying to use his influence as a County Commissioner to intimidate me into showing information that I was not permitted to do,” San Juan Sheriff’s Deputy Wyatt Holyoak said, per KUTV’s reporting.

Bodycam footage shows Bruce Adams’ disturbing interaction with San Juan County Sheriff’s Deputy Wyatt Holyoak following a November 25, 2022, traffic stop, KUTV reported.

Earlier in the evening, Deputy Brayden Giddings pulled over Bruce Adams’ son, Kenneth Adams, for failing to stop at a stop sign and failing to signal. Additional officers came to the scene after the deputy discovered Kenneth Adams had an outstanding warrant, the validity of which Kenneth Adams disputed. Kenneth then phoned his parents, the outlet notes.

Deputy Wyatt Holyoak, also at the scene, next suggests Kenneth Adams’ car be released to his parents, per the footage.
