In an interview conducted with Lyft, he stated that he was arriving home from work when he noticed a traffic stop in front of his house. According to Lyft, the officers asked the man to exit his vehicle, and after he had done so, he was ordered to put his hands behind his back. When the man insisted that he had done nothing wrong, “one of the officers hit him in the head”, said Lyft. With the presence of mind to record, Lyft immediately pulled out his phone to document the incident.

After the man was taken into custody, the female passenger of the car was removed from the vehicle and searched by a male officer. Having no evidence to further detain the woman, she was released with no charges.11358746_846190832097084_1187922882_n

When Lyft was asked why he recorded, he went on to say, “I was really upset with what I was seeing. I had to record and let others know what’s going on with cops”.
The Stockton California Police Department can be contacted from 8am-5pm (UTC-8am) at (209) 937-8377.
