New Jersey campus police struggled to arrest a 27-year-old college student for more than seven minutes, pepper spraying him in the process, in a video going viral, never once providing probable cause, despite being asked several times.
The video begins with Brookdale Community College police trying to arrest Jeffrey Michel on a bridge while another man stands nearby openly recording.
Michel remains stiff, his hands grasping to the rail, as three cops try to handcuff him. He repeatedly asks the reason for his arrest, but they remain vague, accusing him of “obstructing of identification” and “resisting arrest.” Eventually more cops arrive and one cop ends up pepper spraying him and they eventually handcuff him, but they never state the reason for his arrest.
