Police released body camera video of an arrest to show exactly what happened after an excessive force lawsuit was filed.
Alton Corey claims police officers showed up to his door and slammed him into a wall, leaving him hurt and bloodied. He filed an excessive force lawsuit against the city of Champaign and the two police officers involved, William Killin and Dillon Holloway, because of what happened. Corey was arrested in October for battery against a police officer. That charge was later dropped. Now Corey is coming back with the suit saying the officers were the ones who should be held responsible for what happened to him. The city says they released the videos because they want to be transparent about what happened. Corey claims the officers’ actions leading to his arrest were unreasonable and deliberate. October 17, 2017, officers knocked on Corey’s door, responding to a dispute call between him and another person.
