The graphic video begins with what appears to be a white man on the ground being pummeled by officers. The context of the encounter is not clear. It is unknown how or why the police were involved with the individual to begin with.


Unconfirmed reports say when the police initially encountered the man, conversation appeared to be calm. However, at some point it is alleged that the man began attacking one of deputies by pushing him to the ground and punching the officer in the back of his head.

The Crawford County Sheriff's Office released a statement on Facebook which said:

“In reference to the video circulating social media involving two Crawford County Deputies, we have requested that Arkansas State Police conduct the investigation and the Deputies have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. I hold all my employees accountable for their actions and will take appropriate measures in this matter”.

The community and social media are demanding answers and actions. Many commenting on the Sheriffs post cited the brutal nature of the altercation saying the officers involved should be arrested, not suspended.

There is no explanation possible, only accountability. The actions of these officers is completely unacceptable. Facebook User
They should be arrested for battery as any other citizen would be- Facebook User
This is disgusting and heart breaking. there is no “investigation” to be conducted. it’s all on video. there is NO EXPLANATION for this behavior. makes me physically sick. livid can’t even describe this. - Facebook User

Two county deputies and a Mulberry police officer are said to be involved. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with pertinent information can contact Crawford County Sheriff’s Department 4235 Alma Highway Van Buren, AR 72956. Phone: 479-474-2261
