Freeman and the SBI watched footage recorded on the officers’ body-worn and dash cameras.

“There is ample video in this case. I have asked Raleigh Police Department in doing their investigation to make sure they video the interviews they do. I feel confident that they can provide me with a full picture of what has happened,” Freeman said.

The incident involved the arrest of Braily Andres Batista-Concepcion.

The arrest came to light after a video of the incident was posted to social media.
