US police launch probe after black man detained while picking up trash

US police launch probe after black man detained while picking up trash

The video shows the officer approaching the man, who was using a trash picker and bucket to clean up his yard. In the clip, the witness can be heard telling police, "He's picking up trash and you have your hand on your gun". "I don't have a weapon!"

"Go home. This is ridiculous".

"I don't have a weapon!" the man said.

The officer tells the man several times to drop his "weapon".

He counted out eight police officers standing around him at that point.

The man maintains that he is a resident at the property and that he goes to school nearby.

In a video that has since gone viral, the police can be seen ordering the man to sit down.

The man repeatedly tells the officers that he lived at the apartment complex, was simply picking up rubbish and was not armed. "Or you're going to tase me and arrest me and beat the s**t out of me?"

About 10 minutes into the video, a third voice can be heard saying police are "getting ready to leave".

"Just relax, man", the officer responds as sirens are heard and more officers arrive and surround him.

Kelly Pays Child Support, Is Finally Released From Jail
In February, the singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of four women - pleading not guilty to all charges. When interviewer King asked whether the children want to have a relationship with him, Kelly replied, "I bet you they do.

Watch the full video below.

Meanwhile, the initial responding officer, whose name hasn't been released, has been placed on paid administrative leave.

The department said the internal affairs investigation should take between 60 and 90 days to complete.

According to a police statement, an officer had observed a man in a partially enclosed patio found behind a "Private Property" sign on March 1 and began speaking to him to determine if he was allowed on the property.

While video shows police with their hands on their hips, presumably near their firearms, it's unclear if an officer ever verbally threatened to shoot the man. But when the officer detained him for further investigation, the man grew angry and his neighbor started recording the incident with a cell phone.

Police in Boulder said an officer had called for back up as the man was "unwilling to put down a blunt object".

The building where the confrontation took place is student housing for Naropa University.

This man was obviously not a threat to himself or others; the video proves it.

"This is an extremely concerning issue, and one that we are taking very seriously", police chief Greg Tesla told a local council meeting on Tuesday.

"Our internal affairs investigation will include a review of all body worn camera video, interviews of everyone involved which includes both officers and community members, reports and all other related information", Aulabaugh said.
