The driver of the vehicle continued to drive on, and when the officer saw the man standing in the middle of the road, he started to get nervous. “
I’m not going to let you drive,” the officer yelled.
The driver of the vehicle continued to drive on, and when the officer saw the man standing in the middle of the road, he started to get nervous.
“He was going to pull over on my left, and if I didn’t do what he wanted, he would get away,” he said.
But then the car’s door swung open.
The officer opened the driver’s side door and yelled at the driver to get out of the car.
“You’re not going anywhere, you’re not a danger,” he yelled.
“Put your hands behind your back.”
The man tried to comply.
“No, I don’t want to do that,” he responded.
But the officer wasn’t done.
He started yelling at him, asking him, “What are you doing?
What are you thinking?”
The man kept going.
“What did you do to me?” the officer demanded.
The man replied, “I just want to say that you’re hurting me.”
At this point, the officer pulled out a baton and began swinging it.
As he swung it, the man began to cry.
“My face, my head,” the man said.
The officers body camera was rolling.
He said that he thought they were going to arrest him.
But as the officer was about to charge him, he was able to stop the assault with his Taser.
“Don’t hit me, don’t hit the officer,” the passenger in the car said.
“Do what he says,” the driver told the officer.
The officer then pulled out his baton.
“That’s when you get your gun, that’s when the taser goes off,” the police officer said.
At this time, the officers body-worn camera was still recording.
The video clearly shows the moment the officer tased the man.
But this wasn’t the only time the officer used force against the man during his arrest.
The New York City Police Department is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice for the use of excessive force during the arrest of a man in the Bronx last year.
During the arrest, an officer pinned the man against the side of a building, dragged him out of his car, then held the man down by his neck and face until the officer called for backup.
The department has not released any details about the incident.
The NYPD has been under scrutiny for its treatment of people of color and its use of force against people of all colors.
But in this case, the incident appears to have been caught on camera.
A lawyer for the man, who is white, said the officers response was excessive.
“We are very disappointed in the police department, and this was caught on video,” said lawyer Robert Czubin.
“They have not shown any remorse, and there is no apology or acknowledgment that it happened.”
He also said that the officer’s actions violated the department’s policies on the use and escalation of force.
“In the absence of any further information from the department, we will be pursuing this matter with all the resources we have to,” Czumins statement read.
The lawyer for one of the men who was arrested, who also requested anonymity, said that during the confrontation, the two men exchanged words.
“The other man asked, ‘Where’s your gun?’ and the officer responded, ‘I’m going to tase you,'” he said in a statement.
“While I understand that the other man was confused and confused, I believe that the officers use of the tase to control the situation and make the arrest was reasonable and justified.”
In a statement, the department said that its officers have a duty to protect themselves and the public from violent suspects.
The statement added that the department does not tolerate the use or threat of force in any circumstances and has a policy that prohibits officers from using excessive force.
In a letter obtained by the AP, the city’s top civil rights official said the department was committed to working with the city attorney’s office to “address any and all concerns raised by members of the public.”
The letter went on to say, “As we look to the future, we are committed to engaging with our community in a spirit of mutual respect and trust.
We will continue to work with the community to create and implement an inclusive and effective policing policy that respects the rights of all New Yorkers.”
The department did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
The city attorney declined to comment to the AP.
The AP obtained a copy of the police body-camera video.
