Morre is a nine-year veteran of HPD and worked in a specialized crime reduction unit combating street crimes. He was caught on surveillance video last September punching, slapping and kicking two men inside of a local business. Morre also threw a stool at one of the victims, resulting in the man getting stitches.
The incident was just one of many that mired the HPD in controversy over the past year. Another sergeant was caught on tape fighting with his girlfriend, causing lawmakers to speak out about lax enforcement of domestic violence and weak oversight.
