Body Cam Footage Captures Drunk Driver Shooting Police Officer -Police have captured the man who shot a veteran police officer three times during a traffic stop in Albuquerque, NM.

According to ABC news affiliate KOAT, Christopher Cook was arrested on Tuesday after being identified as the man who shot Officer Lou Golson on Saturday morning. Golson, a 31-year veteran, pulled over Cook for suspicion of driving under the influence, at which point Cook fired off five rounds with three striking Golson. The officer, who was wearing a body cam at the time, tried to shoot back, but Cook got away.

Golson underwent surgery for his injuries and is expected to take months to recover.

Cook, who is homeless, is facing charges of attempted murder, felon in possession of a firearm, shooting at/from a motor vehicle and receiving and transferring a motor vehicle. He will also face grand theft auto charges for stealing the car he was in during the incident.

When asked about the crime, Cook says he doesn't remember the shooting at all. "I don't remember Saturday," he said. "I haven't slept in two weeks." He also showed little remorse for the police officer's family.  "I don't know his family, what am I going to say?"

Golson recently came out of retirement to work in the department's DWI unit.

Cook has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.
