The ACLU is getting involved after dash cam video shows police in Venice bodyslamming a burglary suspect at an area motel.
A maid at a Motel 6 called police after seeing a man, later identified as 19-year old Ethan Waters, entering a room through a window. What the maid didn’t know is that Waters and his roommate had told motel management they had to enter through the window while they were waiting for another room key to be made.
Police arrived and were seen throwing the 19-year old against a wall and later slamming him to the ground. He was never charged with burglary, only “resisting arrest without violence.”
