significant amount of forensic evidence
we are still at the very early stages of
this investigation which can often take
up to a year to complete and our
understanding of the incident may change
as this additional evidence is collected
analyzed and reviewed
we also do not draw any conclusions
about whether the officers acted
consistent with our policies and the law
until all the facts are known and the
investigation is complete a word of
caution the images and information

West traffic division motor officer was
flagged down for a traffic collision in
the area of Venice Boulevard and Lincoln
Boulevard several community members
involved in the traffic collision
directed the officer to a man who they
indicated had caused the vehicle
the man was running in the middle of the
street and exhibiting erratic behavior
that suspect was later identified as

officer restriction and sat on the
sidewalk for several minutes however as
the additional officers arrived Anderson
suddenly attempted to flee the location

westbound on Venice Boulevard
the officers gave Chase and ordered
Anderson to stop

ordered to get on the ground

Anderson into custody he became
increasingly agitated uncooperative and
resisted the officers
the officers continued to struggle with

prohibits viewers from seeing everything
the officers saw and experienced
