Police are once again investigating the actions of their own force following an incident over the weekend at Power Plant Live.
According to WBAL, Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis is looking for smartphone video related to the early Sunday morning altercation between police and 24-year-old Aaron Winston outside the Mosaic nightclub at Power Plant Live.
Police say Winston interfered with officers who were transporting a friend. Davis said police had to use force to subdue Winston, then arrested him and took him to the police department headquarters across the street. Winston suffered a broken arm in the incident.
Police haven’t completed their incident, and they want citizens to come forward with evidence.
“I find it hard to believe of the 2, 300 people in the Mosaic nightclub during this interaction, nobody took out one of these,” he said, holding up a smartphone.
The incident comes as the city is in the midst of negotiating a deal to outfit officers with body cameras. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake previously said that the city hoped to have a contract completed with Taser International by the end of February.
