DETROIT, MI – Detroit Police Chief James Craig on Thursday August 24th, 2017 addressed a video where an officer under his command is shown to be involved in a violent arrest.
What is even more disturbing, the officers official report does not match what is shown in the video.
Chief Craig said the case has been forwarded to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office on Friday to determine if the officer should be criminally charged. Craig said the officer remains on restricted desk duty, with pay, as the charges are considered.
The Detroit Police Chief did acknowledge that there is a second video that the public has not yet saw. That video is from gas stations cameras. Craig said that the video shows what lead up to the altercation.
