Tye Anders, 21, was followed by police to his grandmother’s house after driving past a stop sign in Midland, Texas.
In this dramatic eye-witness video, police are seen pointing weapons at Anders as he lies face-down on the front lawn of his grandmother’s property. As the tension builds, onlookers beg the police to put their guns down, and then the young man’s 90-year-old grandmother approaches in an attempt to diffuse the situation.
Anders’ lawyer posted the footage on Instagram, saying the officers ‘assaulted’ the woman, ‘knocking’ her to the ground. Justin Moore believes there was no traffic violation and the arrest was based on racial profiling.
Midland District Attorney Laura Nodolf said in a statement that her office is reviewing all the evidence the police submitted. She said any officer misconduct would be thoroughly investigated.
