The Sacramento Police Department provided the public with more visuals for an altercation that took place between an officer and a pedestrian over jaywalking on April 11. 

Earlier this week, the police department released nine additional videos of an incident from earlier this month when an officer was filmed using questionable force against a man for allegedly jaywalking.

In the video, the officer stopped a man who “was observed crossing the street unlawfully near the intersection of Cypress Street and Grand Avenue in North Sacramento,” according to a statement released by Sacramento Police Department. For an unknown reason, the statement reads, the officer threw the man to the ground and began striking him in the face with his hand multiple times. 

The additional videos are from the viewpoints of additional officers who arrived on the scene, and one from police helicopter.
