Dear Angel Gonzales,


On July 17, 2017, we received your public records request for the following records:


Any and all lapel video, 911 calls and cad reports regarding the arrest of Sir Joseph Cotton on July 14, 2017. Cotton was arrested outside Lotus Night Club after shooting someone in the leg. The criminal complaint for Mr. Cotton is attached.


We cannot permit inspection of these records because they are exempt from disclosure under IPRA, NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records); and NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1(A)(8) (otherwise provided by law). If made public the requested records would seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution.


My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
