Officers in Alabama police arrest video identified
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Authorities have identified three Alabama police officers who were placed on paid administrative leave after videos showed them using a stun gun and a baton to break up a post-football game party.
Tuscaloosa police Chief Steven Anderson on Tuesday identified the officers as James Kent, Phillip Champion and Gregory Pimm.
Police were called to an apartment building Sunday morning because of a noise complaint after the University of Alabama's win over Louisiana State.
Video showed police pulling three people out of an apartment after an argument. Officers used a stun gun on at least one person and repeatedly hit another with a baton. A full version of the video can be viewed here (WARNING: contains graphic violence and NSFW language).
A phone number for Pimm couldn't be found. Calls and messages to phone numbers listed for Champion and Kent weren't answered.
