Ohio police release statement on violent arrest of a black man captured on video



Dash camera video released by Euclid, Ohio police shows the violent arrest of a black man during a traffic stop that happened on Aug. 12, 2017.

The Euclid Police Department released footage of the Saturday arrest on Sunday afternoon after witness video racked up thousands of views on Facebook.

The struggle between a 25-year-old Richard Hubbard III and a Euclid County police officer, Matthew Amiott lasted about three minutes.

According to police, the confrontation started after Hubbard committed a traffic violation.

According to reports, officer Amiott has a history of disciplinary issues including losing evidence, losing his temper and hitting a suspect with a gun.

"There seems to be some aggression and at no time have we seen de-escalation take place," Michael Nelson, attorney for the Cleveland NAACP, told Cleveland.com. "This particular videotape is disturbing regardless of the underlying circumstances."

Officer Amiott is currently on paid administrative leave while the incident is being investigated.
