ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany family is demanding justice after they say their son was brutalized by an Albany Dougherty Drug Unit officer during a traffic stop. And they say it was all caught on video.
This is the video that the attorney representing Llewellyn Glover Jr. says is the 20 year old Albany State University student being slammed on the street by A.D.D.U. officer Jamie Sutton, on April 25th during a traffic stop.
Glover said he did not resist the officer, but the officer pushed him in the throat and mouth, and he backed up by instinct. "Told him I didn't swallow nothing," said Glover. "He insists that I was trying to hide something though. And I ended up dropping my phone at one point. From what I remember, and he grabbed me."
Glover's family said he suffered a broken hand, which required surgery, a fractured foot, and had to have three staples for a head wound.
Glover was charged with obstruction of an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence, and broken taillight.
Police issued a statement saying they are investigating the report of excessive use of force, and the officer is on administrative lead.
