FPD also released body camera footage of the incident, which can be viewed below.
Chief Hall said that the officer's detention of the individual allowed for Code Enforcement to complete their jobs, and the individual was released without any further charges.
However, he added that he gave clear directions to officers to avoid arresting or enforcing people based on the shelter-in-place order without his approval, and said an Internal Affairs investigation into the incident is underway.
