|A police officer in suburban Atlanta has been fired after an internal investigation found he used unnecessary force during the arrest of a former college football player Authentic Rashaan Evans Jersey , the police chief said Thursday. Henry County police officer David Rose faced administrative charges of maltreatment or unnecessary force during the Dec. 2 arrest of Desmond Marrow and also faced conduct violations, Chief Mark Amerman said in an emailed statement. Amerman said he agreed with an internal investigation's findings and fired Rose.
Also Thursday, Henry County District Attorney Darius Pattillo said no felony charges would be brought against Marrow.
Police were called to a shopping center parking lot because of an alleged road rage situation involving Marrow, according to the police report and witness statements.
In a one-minute video clip posted online, officers can be seen forcefully taking a handcuffed Marrow to the ground by sweeping his legs out from under him as he yells, "I'm not even fighting back." When he's on the ground, an officer puts his hand on Marrow's throat for several seconds and Marrow says, "I can't breathe," while another officer tells him to settle down.
Marrow is black. Henry County police didn't immediately respond to an email Thursday seeking to confirm Rose's race. Henry County is in the southeastern arc of metro Atlanta.
Rose was recorded on his in-car video camera system saying that he had choked Marrow and that he wasn't going to include that information in his report, Amerman said.
"(W)e promised to find the truth for Desmond Marrow," wherever it led, Amerson said. He added that "being open and transparent is important to us at the Henry County Police Department."
It wasn't immediately clear whether Rose had an attorney who could comment on his firing.
Marrow's lawyers had accused the officers of using excessive force and lying in their report. On Thursday Adidas Brock Boeser Jersey , they applauded the police chief and district attorney.
"We're happy that this chief stepped forward and is holding the officer who choked Desmond accountable and getting him off the force, attorney Chris Stewart said in a phone interview.
Police had arrested Marrow on charges of terroristic threats, felony obstruction of a law enforcement officer, reckless driving and aggressive driving. A magistrate judge has already dismissed the terroristic threats charges. Pattillo said he won't pursue the felony charge, and the misdemeanor charges will now be turned over to the county solicitor general for review.
Marrow and his attorneys have maintained that Marrow followed two men in a car into a shopping center parking lot to talk with them after the men yelled racial slurs and threw coffee at him. Given those circumstances, another of Marrow's attorney's, Andrea Boyd, said she hopes the solicitor general will drop the other charges as well.
Marrow said the developments in his case represent a victory for other victims of excessive use of force by police.
"It's a step in the right direction for all the other victims, the ones that can't speak, the ones that died," he said. "It's a win for their families also."
Robbie Swinson, who witnessed Marrow's arrest Tanner Pearson Jersey , told The Associated Press last month that he believes police used unnecessary force when they took Marrow to the ground once he was in cuffs and choked him. But he also said he saw Marrow aggressively chase another vehicle down the road and in the parking lot, heard him talk about shooting people and then saw him scuffle with police as they tried to handcuff him.
The police chief said the department's internal investigation also found that the actions of a second officer were consistent with department policy. The brief video that circulated online doesn't show the entire encounter and doesn't show how much Marrow fought with officers as they tried to get control of the situation, Amerson said.
Addressing the part of the video that shows officers taking Marrow to the ground, Amerson said, "That is what police officers are trained to do when they cannot gain control of a suspect, and is in compliance with departmental policy."
Pattillo, the district attorney, said a review panel in his office is still working to determine whether the use of force was justified.
Marrow played football at the University of Toledo in Ohio but wasn't drafted out of college. He signed a contract in 2012 with the Houston Texans but was cut during preseason. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked him up but he didn't make the team.
The Tennessee Titans will be working out veteran safety Eric Reid in their search for a potential replacement after losing Johnathan Cyprien for the season with a torn left ACL, according to a person familiar with the visit. Reid will work out for the Titans on Friday, a person familiar with Reid’s visit told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team does not announce which players it is working out.
The Titans will become only the second NFL team to bring Reid in for a visit this year. Reid’s visit with the Cincinnati Bengals ended with the safety filing a claim this spring arguing he was unsigned as a result of collusion by NFL owners over his protests of police brutality and racial inequality by kneeling during the anthem.
Coach Mike Vrabel said earlier Thursday that the Titans have looked at Reid.
”I know we’re in the process of talking and trying to bring him in,” Vrabel said. ”(GM) Jon (Robinson) and I will continue to discuss that and see where it goes. Yes, it’s a guy we evaluated and we’ll probably try to talk to his rep and see how many guys we can bring in here for a workout.”
Reid http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jalen-ramsey-jersey , 26, has been out of work since playing out his contract with San Francisco. He started 69 of 70 games with 10 career interceptions.
The safety said in March that he does not plan to protest during the anthem this season if signed by a team. After he filed his collusion claim, the NFL Players Association also filed a non-injury grievance on Reid’s behalf in May. Cincinnati owner Mike Brown reportedly asked Reid during their visit whether he would continue to kneel during the anthem.
The Titans are looking for help at safety after losing Cyprien. The veteran left practice Wednesday after hurting his left knee during a noncontact play. He grabbed at his knee and then walked to the locker room with trainers, waiving off a cart. Cyprien, who signed a four-year deal last season, started 10 games after dealing with an injured hamstring.
Tennessee already has Kendrick Lewis, 30 and with his fourth NFL team, and Demontre Hurst among the other options at safety on the roster. Kenny Vaccaro, who played the last five seasons in New Orleans, and Mike Mitchell also are among veteran safeties currently unsigned.
”Devastated to tell you that after checking him out, he tore his ACL and he’ll be out for a year, which is tough for me as is a new head coach to watch guys work hard Kevin Huber Jersey , extremely hard, in the offseason and care about the team and play hard and do everything that we’ve asked them to do and then not get a chance to experience the NFL season this year,” Vrabel said.
Tennessee already has All-Pro Kevin Byard at the other safety spot, with Logan Ryan, Adoree Jackson and free agent signee Malcolm Butler at cornerback for a unit that has its sights set on being the NFL’s best secondary. Ryan said at least the Titans have time to adjust.
”It tests our depth, but some of that’s been well-documented that we feel like we have good depth so it’s going to show it …,” Ryan said. ”This didn’t happen the day before the first game. It’s giving us time to work out the kinks. They might move me around a little bit and allow me to do more things in the secondary if need be and get more of our guys on the field.”
