Video: Caught On Body Cam: Cops Drag Man From His Car And Taser Him For Playing Loud Music & Trying To Flee By Vehicle!
The Mississippi County NAACP is asking for an investigation after police officers pulled a black man from his car before Tasering and pepper spraying him for playing music too loud. Patrick Newbern has been charged with a violation of the city noise ordinance, fleeing by vehicle and resisting arrest after police attempted to cite him in a convenience store parking lot on Easter morning. Newbern begins to drive out of the parking lot, but stops at which point an officer can be heard saying, “Get his ass out of the car.” As he explains to the officers that his brakes don’t work, they begin pulling him from the car without allowing him to unbuckle his seat belt. He is immediately thrown to the ground as one officer is seen pressing a Taser into his back. As he screams in agony, another officer pepper sprays him before he is held face down where he can be heard yelling “I can’t see!”
