Former Asheville Police Officer Charged For August Beating

  • I can’t breathe!’ Video shows beating of jaywalking man in North Carolina

Something that won't be happening according to Hooper is an investigation into who leaked the tape of the beating to the Asheville Citizen-Times, which first published it. Police body camera footage is not public record in North Carolina, and in the wake of the release of the video of the Rush beating, both Hooper and Buncombe County district attorney Todd Williams backed the idea of investigating the leak.

Video taken by Hickman's body camera, which was leaked to the Citizen Times of Asheville, shows he and his partner stopping Rush and telling him they had warned him four times to use a crosswalk instead of jaywalking and trespassing on private property.

The city also filed a petition Monday asking for more body-camera recordings of the incident to be released on belief that doing so "is necessary to provide the public with full disclosure of the circumstances surrounding the arrest" and "to provide the public with all relevant information to understand the events that transpired". During the ensuing chase, Hickman can be heard yelling, "You are going to get fucked up hardcore", while pulling out his stun gun.

On Wednesday, The Associated Press reported that the FBI had opened a criminal investigation into the actions of Hickman.

In particular, it was the investigation into Hickman, who's white, that was brought up the most.

Rush says several times he can not breathe after being taken to the ground and shocked with a stun gun.

Hickman's charges stem from an August 24, 2017, incident in which he, along with then officer-in-training Verino Ruggiero, approached Johnnie Jermaine Rush for jaywalking.

Rush admitted running when he heard Hickman. Hickman began spewing racial slurs and went after Rush.

All charges against Rush, including assaulting a government official and jaywalking, have been dropped.

Jackson wrote that Hickman ordered a review of all body camera footage taken by Hickman while on duty. The investigation also found that Hickman had engaged in "rude and discourteous behavior" on at least four other occasions.

Asheville police Chief Tammy Hooper says the video's release was illegal and an investigation is needed to determine the source of the leak.

Hickman resigned from the department sometime before january 19, according to a memo obtained by the Citizen Times.

"The community deserves to know that the City takes Hickman's misconduct seriously, and that APD employees who engage in excessive force will be held accountable". Rush briefly appears to indicate that he'll cooperate before fleeing from Hickman on foot. He was charged with assault by strangulation, assault inflicting serious injury and communicating threats.

"This is a human rights issue, and Hickman should've been charged from day one", local Black Lives Matter leader DeLores Venable said during Wednesday's meeting, per the Citizen-Times report. Hooper was asked whether she would do the same at last night's meeting, and she responded by saying she'd resign if people thought it would fix the problem. "It's hard enough that we can't just throw a piece of technology at it and expect to substantially change police supervision", said Seth Stoughton, who teaches law at the University of SC.
