132. Police account is a lie:
According to the police:

Police said when the officer asked Jerald Newman about the video game he put in his waistband, he began flailing his arms.

"As the officer put handcuffs on the suspect, he resisted arrest, flailing his arms and pulling away from the officer backing up," said Buckeye Police Asst. Chief Larry Hall.

A leg sweep was used on Newman, who hit his head when he fell and began bleeding, police said.

Now look at the video. You'll see that the guy isn't cuffed until he's already lying on the ground unconscious, face down. Then the cop pulls out the handcuffs and puts them on.
