The first video, recorded by a motorist, shows Gwinnett County Police Sergeant Michael Bongiovanni punching a 21-year-old man in the face who had his hands in the air during a traffic stop.
Two officers in the state of Georgia had been fired on Thursday, only 24 hours since mobile phone videos had surfaced of the pair kicking and punching a motorist whilst in handcuffs.
Police said videos showed the officers violating the law and department policies during the traffic stop Wednesday.
FILE - In this Wednesday, April 12, 2017 file photo released by the Gwinnett County (Ga.) Sheriff's Office, Demetrius Bryan Hollins poses for a photograph after being arrested.
Demetrius Hollins had been stopped by police in the Lawrenceville area when he was stomped in the head by an officer. The police department has also opened a criminal investigation into the incident. Results will be turned over to the county district attorney, who will then decide whether to bring criminal charges in the cases. "We want them to have to stand before a Gwinnett County judge in a courtroom full of Gwinnett County citizens, with their legs shackled and their hands cuffed behind their back". This one showed Bongiovanni dragging Hollins out of his auto before McDonald arrived on the scene.
The officer said he realized that he had arrested Hollins on August 17, 2016 for having marijuana and a loaded gun in the auto.
Hollins also said there were no drugs in his vehicle despite the arrest report saying he was in possession of marijuana.More news: April the Giraffe Finally Gives Birth
"With the particular police officer before and he charged me with the same charges as he charged me with yesterday". As Attorney General Jeff Sessions moves to de-emphasize reform that might address the issue of police brutality, it's unlikely the picture will become clearer anytime soon.
The officer said the vehicle appeared to stall, and he got out to speak to the driver and could smell marijuana.
"I'm traumatized that this happened to me", Hollins said. His report also said that Hollins was "acting strangely" and started asking for his mother.
According to the person who filmed the video, who handed over their footage to the Greater Atlanta chapter of Black Lives Matter shortly after the incident, "blood splattered everywhere" when the second officer kicked Hollins in the face.
"All I can say is I wish this never happened to me", Hollins told Channel 2 Action News after he was released from jail. He'd been a part of the south precinct's community response team and was named officer of the month several times.
Police said the officers are both white, and police reports say Hollins is black. The officer then immediately requested a backup unit for assistance.
