Rev. Lennox Yearwood was hospitalized due to injuries sustained from an arrest after being denied entry to a House hearing with General Petraeus last month. A broken ankle was sustained during a police takedown by 5-6 officers. YouTube Footages have surfaced.
He was charged with assaulting police officers, but video footages did not show any evidence of wrongdoing. The footage show the Rev. shrugging an officer's hand off his shoulder before being tackled to the ground by a gang of officers.
A spokeswoman says he has not decided whether to make a formal complaint yet. However, afterwards the Rev. stated: "Police will go so far as to jump me when I question my exclusion from a hearing that is open to the public?”
