Austin Police Beat & Taser A Handcuffed Man Outside Of A Convenience Store
Four officers from the Austin Police Department, one in a black Santa hat and three others wearing black face masks, led a handcuffed man to an out-of-the-way corner where they tased and punched him, according to video taken by a bystander. The officers arrested the man, Jason Donald, at a convenience store Tuesday evening in downtown Austin, Texas, and led him around the side of the building, according to local news reports.
“The suspect managed to slip one hand out of the handcuffs and had his hands in front of him,” Austin police said in a statement. “The officers and suspect end up going to the ground, while the officers attempt to overcome his resistance and place him back in handcuffs.”
