It’s a new perspective in crime fighting that Manteca police are first to use in San Joaquin County.
The department isn’t going into much detail, saying it was in late April when Melton was attempting to arrest a suspect on the 1600 block of Evans Road. Another officer witnessed him using excessive force.
The accusations stem from an incident on April 13, 2013 when Officer Christopher Melton allegedly assaulted the suspect while taking the suspect into custody in the 1600 block of Evans Road.
The findings of an investigation have been released following allegations of police brutality within the Modesto Police Department.
