A police officer in Lansing, Michigan, is on paid administrative leave. The police have launched a review of a violent arrest captured in the video, which appears to be assaulting a man when the police arrested the man on Tuesday night.
In a statement on Wednesday, the police said that in the course of a long fight against a “aggressive” 25-year-old man, the police used a Taser stun gun and “launched a strike”.
Police Chief Daryl Green ordered an unidentified police officer to be put on leave and said that the internal affairs investigation will review the actions of all persons involved.
The incident unfolded on the sidewalk around 1
The video appeared to show five police officers fixing the man to the ground, beating him, and giving orders to make the man upper abdomen. The man seemed to have said: “Why are you hitting me?”
At another point, an official shouted “Please help me,” and the man said “I didn’t do it.”
The police said in a statement that the police are responding to reports of fighting involving five to six people and determined that the 25-year-old man “is the main suspect in the attack.”
The police said he refused to arrest. The police said: “During the long struggle to secure the suspect, the police deployed the Taser and launched a strike.”
When the video started, at least one police officer appeared to be arguing with the man. The man’s arm was wrapped around the police officer’s waist. Then more police officers arrived at the group and landed.
Brandon Hayduk, 37, is a man. He said he took the video and said he was going to a store when he saw a male police officer facing the man. Hejduk said the police officer told the man to go to a police car and mentioned that a waffle bat was thrown in the street.
He said that when he left the store, the male and female police officers “made physical contact with the gentleman” before more officers arrived, and then he started recording from his car.
Hejduk said: “I know if someone refuses to arrest, you must conquer them.” “…it doesn’t take much to see too much power in this video.”
The identity of the 25-year-old man was not disclosed in the police statement, but the police said that he had been evaluated in the hospital-the department said this was the standard when using Taser-had been cleared and taken to the detention center. Police said the Ingham County Attorney will seek a formal prosecution.
A police spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment to seek more details.
The police said that two police officers were slightly injured.
Police Chief Green “completed the preliminary investigation” and arranged paid administrative leave for an official, but the statement did not say whether Green had made any conclusions about the behavior.
Lansing Mayor Andy Scheer said on Wednesday afternoon that the chief “immediately” began the review, the department has released details and has launched an investigation.
In the video, the arrested man once said “I can’t breathe.” The police seemed to get him out of the car immediately and said that he would turn him over so that he could breathe.
This sentence echoes the fatal arrest of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May, who died after a policeman knelt on his neck and was in Staten in 2014 Island New York City Mayor Eric Garner (Eric Garner) died.
