BATON ROUGE - Louisiana State Police released video evidence related to the arrest of Ronald Greene, who died in police custody after a violent encounter with state troopers in 2019.

The controversy surrounding Greene's death reached a new high this week after leaked body camera video showed Greene beaten, tased, and dragged by his legs during the arrest in 2019. Greene ultimately died in custody.
The Investigative Unit first reported on the death in 2020, after Greene's family filed a federal lawsuit.
