THE INCIDENT:

Wrongfully Assaulted

A man attempting to be a good Samaritan was wrongfully assaulted. He had helped to break up a fight in a bar and then helped the injured person get outside until police arrived. When police got to the scene, the injured man was uncooperative and then became passively resistant to police.

As officers attempted to detain the subject against his will, a back up officer violently pushed the Good Samaritan in the back, knocking him down, merely because he was standing nearby. When the Good Samaritan got up, police swarmed him and tackled him to the ground, tasing him two or three times.

While the good Samaritan was held down by three officers, a fourth officer then kicked the Good Samaritan in the head and punched him several times. The Good Samaritan was then arrested and charged with assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.
