BATON ROUGE, La. – Family members viewed long-secret body-camera video this week of a Black man who died in Louisiana State Police custody, their attorney calling it damning footage that shows troopers choking and beating the man, repeatedly jolting him with stun guns and dragging him face-down across the pavement.

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.
