Body camera: Man complains after police encounter

Police body camera: Spokane Police Officer Taylor Johnson briefly detained Anwar Peace, an employee of Mister Car Wash on North Division Street around 5:09 p.m. Dec. 29, 2019 (time/date stamp shows Dec. 30) while officers swept the area and searched for a domestic violence suspect in North Spokane. Peace refused to give his name but was released after a few minutes. Peace filed a complaint after another officer, Chris Johnson (no relation to Officer Taylor Johnson) returned to the car wash a short time later, spoke with the car wash manager and argued with Peace. The conversation between the police officer and the car wash manager is omitted here because there was no sound on the video, but it picks up with the heated conversation between the officer and Peace inside the car wash.
