Weber County fires man at the center of campground confrontation video
UPDATE: The Cache County Sheriff's Office has concluded the investigation, as of Tuesday, June 19. They have identified five adults who have been referred to the Cache County Attorney's office for criminal charges, according to a news release.
(KUTV) — Weber County officials fired an employee Friday after a video of him berating a family at a Utah campsite surfaced earlier this week.
In a statement Friday afternoon, the county said Wyatt Pack, 20, violated policy when he used offensive language in the viral rant . In the video, Pack tells the family he is “a diesel mechanic for Weber County.”
“After viewing the video of Mr. Pack, Weber County Human Resources promptly conducted an investigation, which included Mr. Pack’s right to due process, and determined that he was in direct violation of County policy. Effective Friday, June 1, 2018, Mr. Pack’s employment with Weber County has been terminated,” a Weber County statement said.
Pack told 2News on Tuesday that he was sorry for the way he acted in the incident over Memorial Day weekend in Blacksmith Fork Canyon in Cache County.
Weber County put Pack on leave Tuesday when the video surfaced and said they found his actions “disturbing.”
Pack’s family had a dispute with another family whose truck broke down at a public campsite. Pack said his family had reserved the campsite and the Caballero family’s truck was blocking their area.
In the video, the Caballero family said they would move their trailer as soon as help arrived.
The video has now been seen thousands of times on Youtube and has been shared hundreds of times from the KUTV Facebook page.
