An officer in Phoenix finds himself at the center of an investigation for
using too much force during arrests.
The suspect, Patrick Larrison, can be seen on multiple YouTube videos using
excessive force, such as the video where he aggressively pins down a teenage
girl before handcuffing her. Although he had reason to be there - the
girl was believed to be intoxicated and sharing alcohol with friends at
school - there was no reason for Larrison to treat the young girl as he
did. The girl was later charged with threatening police and
aggravated assault for striking a school employee.
This arrest concludes an investigation conducted both internally and externally
against Larrison, who has been a member of the Phoenix Police Department
for 3.5 years. At least one other officer has come forward to speak out
