"As a police officer patted him down, 17-year-old London Wallace stood with his arms behind his head. When another officer pointed and ordered him to sit, the teen walked in that direction.

It was then that Fresno, California, police officer Christopher Martinez grabbed Wallace's arm, punched him several times in the face and wrestled him to the ground. In reports written after the incident, Martinez accused Wallace of resisting arrest and fighting back. The flurry of punches, he wrote, were necessary to restrain him.

But Wallace's attorney, Nolan Kane, has disputed that account in a complaint filed in Fresno County Superior Court. He cited newly released body camera footage as a reason to doubt the officer's claims and accused the department of using excessive force while breaking up a party eight months ago. At a Tuesday news conference, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer acknowledged the video was alarming and promised a complete investigation."*
