TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – Police in Alabama say they are investigating after online videos showed its officers using a stun gun and baton on young men over the weekend.
Videos show an officer at the door of a Tuscaloosa apartment arguing for several minutes with occupants who refuse to exit.
Officers then storm the residence and drag out two young men and a screaming woman. An officer uses a stun gun on at least one of the men. Another officer hits him repeatedly with what appears to be a baton.
Three people were arrested, but police haven’t released names or charges.
A police statement says the incident began as a noise complaint. Officers were called to an apartment near the University of Alabama campus about 3:20 a.m. Sunday.
