Police chief: Videos don't show excessive force on Griz
MISSOULA (AP) — Police in Missoula have reviewed cellphone videos as part of an internal investigation over the use of a stun gun in the arrests of two University of Montana football players.
Police Chief Mark Muir says the videos do not show any of the officers using force or anything leading up to the officers' use of force.
He tells KECI-TV (http://bit.ly/v7DaFX ) the video does not support claims by the players' attorney that police used excessive force in arresting two players during a loud party early on Oct. 23.
An officer said quarterback Gerald Kemp pushed him in the chest and cornerback Trumaine Johnson tried to intervene after Kemp was hit with the stun gun.
The players have pleaded not guilty to obstructing a peace officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
