A Tennessee police officer is on administrative leave as the violent arrest of a man is investigated

Tennessee officials are investigating an officer’s violent arrest of a Black man accused of fleeing from police trying to stop him after allegedly running a stop sign, officials said.

Brandon Calloway, 25, was tased and eventually subdued with a police baton during an arrest captured on cellphone and body-worn camera video, authorities said.
One of the officers involved in the incident has been placed on administrative leave, an official told CNN.
Mark Davidson, the district attorney for the 25th Judicial District, which includes Fayette County, told CNN he asked the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to review the case.

The arrest happened at around 7:30 p.m. July 16 in Oakland, Tennessee, after a police officer identified only as D. Jackson alleged Calloway failed to stop at stop sign, according to a complaint affidavit obtained by CNN.

Calloway is accused of speeding up to 32 miles per hour in an area with a speed limit of 20 mph, and the officer followed his vehicle until Calloway turned into a driveway and ran inside his home. Continue Reading
