SEATTLE — A Seattle man filed a formal complaint against Seattle police Friday, claiming he was bullied into a beating at the hands of their officers.
Dash cam video taken by an SPD squad car shows Issac Ocak taking sharp blows to the face while other officers held back his arms. (Warning: full video contains graphic language.) Ocak says he was brutally beaten by officers in December 2010 while shopping at Seattle’s Westwood Village.
Once the police dash cam video surfaced, he enlisted the help of attorney James Egan.
“This officer is a bully with a badge,” Egan said.
Egan filed a complaint with SPD’s Office of Professional Accountability, and took the first steps in filing a civil lawsuit against the city. He claims Officer Larry Longley escalated the situation and used excessive force during the arrest.
