I understand police officers have a tough job and the video doesn’t show the altercation, but that short clip is a brutal look for everyone involved.
Multiple cops were on Hayes and he was still hit with a taser. It’s going to be hard to justify that much force.
Jaxson Hayes is expected to be booked on felony charges for battery of a police officer, after law enforcement were called to an LA area home for a domestic disturbance early Wednesday morning
