Mesa Police Accused Of Using Handcuffs As Weapon


(Mesa, AZ)  --  The Mesa PD is accused of using handcuffs as weapons.  The attorney for Terrence Kirkpatrick released body-camera footage last night of his client's arrest.  Kirkpatrick originally called the cops for an unrelated matter, but when officers figured out he had some warrants they wanted to haul him into jail.  The attorney says after a brief struggle they hog tied Kirkpatrick and wouldn't loosen the restraints after he complained of being in pain.  The attorney says using handcuffs is a use of force and needs to be reasonable.
