Police have to deal with unruly teens all the time, but in the case of Officer Derek Nugent anger overcame training. The teen is clearly yelling at the officers and being uncooperative, but Nugent is shown slamming the teen face first into a wall — the teen lost three teeth and the officer has lost ten days of pay in a suspension.
The teenager’s family has filed a complaint with the department and is likely to filed a civil lawsuit.
While such encounters were once dismissed on the officer’s account, more are being caught on tape, including this recent video with skateboarders.
