A police officer's disturbing encounter with an autistic teen is caught on bodycam. 14-year-old Connor Leible was approached by a police officer who was trained as a drug recognition expert. Connor was playing with a string, a technique called stimming that people with autism use to keep calm. The Buckeye Police Department in Arizona says the officer thought the teen was exhibiting behavior of someone on drugs.
