Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson called the actions of an officer, who was recorded on video during an altercation with a man in Towson, "incorrect, inappropriate and unnecessary."
Johnson said Wednesday that the investigation Sunday's incident in Towson that was captured on cellphone will examine the actions of a citizen auxiliary police officer as well as of Baltimore County police officers.
"The words of and demands to cease filming by sworn personnel and citizen volunteer auxiliary officers were incorrect, inappropriate and unnecessary," Johnson said. "They were not helpful in bringing this incident to closure. As we already have stated, all aspects of this encounter are under investigation, and all personnel will be held accountable for their actions."
