ROCKLIN (CBS13) — New body camera footage has been released from a controversial arrest in 2017,
Rocklin Police Officer Brad Alford was accused of using excessive force after hitting a DUI suspect with his baton. After the incident, two officers who were with Alford during the arrest made their concerns known to their chief.
In 2017, the DA’s office issued a criminal complaint against Alford, charging him with one felony count of assault with personal use of a deadly weapon, one felony count of assault by a public officer, and one felony count of filing a false report. On May 15 of this year, a jury acquitted Alford on all charges.
Now that the trial is over, the Placer County DA’s office released that video from the incident.
