Memphis Mayor Wants Swift Probe of Police Arrest; Excessive Force Incident

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Mayor A C Wharton has called for an investigation into an incident on Memphis’ famed Beale Street after video appears to show police using excessive force in restraining someone.

A relative of 22-year old Jarrell Williams posted the video. The grainy cell phone video was posted on You Tube after an incident on Oct. 2nd.

The video shows several police officers subduing a subject identified as Jarrell Williams and one appears to strike him several times but there’s another image of that same officer falling backwards.
