“That moment felt like—it felt like it might have been my last day,” Yarborough recalled.
The officers continued to tell Yarborough to put his hands behind his back as Yarborough tried to explain that he couldn’t, until an officer can be heard to say “light him up,” and a Taser is used. Officers also hit and kick Yarborough while he is on the ground.
The officer who had fallen eventually catches up to the others and tells them that they have to get off of Yarborough before he can comply.
“Guys, Dunham, you have to come up so he can get it back there,” the officer says. “He’s not going anywhere.”
The officer directly on top of Yarborough gets off, and Yarborough puts his hands behind his back, ending the struggle.
