HUMBLE, Texas (KTRK) -- A man from Humble says he was the victim of police brutality during an arrest in June.Surveillance video provided to ABC13 shows Chris Hanna being knocked to the ground by the officer he was standing next to, who appeared to be getting ready to place him in handcuffs.
"He asked my client to raise his hands, it appears.
(Hanna) raises his hands just like this, and the officer reaches for, I believe, his right hand.
In the officer's hand, I believe his right hand, he's holding his handcuffs.
The officer is then seen picking up the back of Hanna's neck and slamming his head into the ground.
But adds he was conscious as he was taken to the police unit, where he was immediately bandaged because of the amount of blood coming from his head.That bandage is clear in the booking photo from Humble police.
But in a statement, police Chief Ken Theis claims Hanna was injured in the fight with the other men.Overstreet said it's clear Hanna's head was not injured before the officer took him down. »
