A 2017 Glendale traffic stop that has resulted in a lawsuit against the city’s police department has prompted the release of additional body cam footage — this time an interview with one of the arresting officers.

Mark Lindsey gave a different perspective of the incident involving Johnny Wheatcroft, who was a passenger in the car and hit with a stun gun several times before being arrested on charges of aggravated assault.

Lindsey said he was struck in the face by a bag that came from the back seat.

“It kind of dazed me for a few seconds. When I stood up, I lost balance, and I think at that point in time I fell back, striking my head on the ground. I found out that the white bag that I was struck with was a bag that was filled with soda bottles and soda cans that were full," said Lindsey.

The lawsuit against the Glendale Police Department alleges that officers used excessive force.
