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.
Superintendent Lamar Davis announced the decision to finally release the video during a news conference Friday evening. The release comes days after the Associated Press published leaked video of the arrest and after countless calls for the agency to release the footage.
Davis also detailed the discipline that had previously been handed out to troopers involved in the arrest. There are still pending state and federal criminal investigations related to their roles in the arrest.

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.
