After being arrested, while I was handcuffed, I was assaulted by an APD officer right outside the jail. The assault happened in the entrance garage of the jail. After I had exited the police SUV in the garage, the officer grabbed me with his hand and slammed the side of my head into his vehicle two times, very quickly, one right after the other. The APD officer then led me, still handcuffed into the booking area of the jail as if it had never happened. This notice of complaint is a request for Internal Affairs to initiate an investigation to determine if the employee conduct is within compliance of APD policy, Civil Service Rules, and Municipal Civil Service Rules.
