Officer Jimmy Hollis claimed that activist Stephen Benavides had assaulted him, starting a mini-riot in which eight people were arrested, including some who were pepper sprayed.
Benavides spent four nights in jail on a felony charge of assaulting a public servant and resisting arrest before he was posted a bond of more than $50,000 on Wednesday.
Even though witnesses accused officers of using excessive force in the arrests, Chief David Brown stood by his officers, insisting that they had acted professionally.
