This is the video of a traffic stop made by the Houston County Sheriff's Office in which excessive force is alleged. The video, provided after an open records request by the Telegraph, was approximately 26 minutes long. Sections of video before and after the event in question were cut for the sake of brevity. The continuity of the event in question was not altered. (Note: Though the dashboard camera states the date as Feb. 24, 2009, all parties agree that is incorrect, and the events occurred Feb. 24, 2010.)
