A mug shot taken of the man after his arrest shows his right eye blackened and swollen shut.
Police spokesman Capt. Tye Grant says a normal review of the arrest showed that an officer involved in the arrest “responded in a manner that required further review.” Grant says the review is being investigated as a possible criminal offense of assault.
No charges have been filed against the officer, whose name hasn’t been released.
