A video of Ridenour’s arrest was posted to YouTube this week. As Chief Carline said in a statement Friday, the officers were aware they were being videotaped at the time of the arrest.
The video begins with an officer telling Ridenour to exit his car, to which Ridenour responds, “Let me get out of the car.” The officer then appears to use a stun gun on Ridenour.READ MORE: 11-Year-Old Girl Struck By School Bus, Seriously Injured In Braintree
Chief Carline said Friday that he was aware of the incident, and ordered the internal investigation into the video as soon as he found out about it.
“Due to the nature of the pending prosecution the results of the internal investigation will be withheld until the completion of this case at which time I look forward to releasing the internal investigation in its entirety,” Chief Carline said in the statement.
Ridenour’s attorney, Peter Aspesi, said Ridenour will not be speaking until the matter is resolved.MORE NEWS: Group Raising Money To Send Boy With Leukemia To Disney World
