Shocking Video of Eaton County Officer Arresting Motorist; Officer Later Resigned
Video via Lansing City Pulse is circulating of a 2014 arrest. The incident begins as a traffic stop with the motorist, Todd Michael Brenizer, issued a citation. But when Brenizer asks the officer, former Eaton County Deputy Greg Brown, why he was pulled over and Brown ignores his question, he asks again. And again.
That's when Brown threatens to arrest Brenizer and says "Get the [expletive] out of the car." Presumably, unbeknownst to Brown, the entire incident, including Brown grabbing and pulling at Brenizer, eventually shoving him to the ground, was all captured on video.
Charges of resisting and obstructing a police officer against Brenizer were eventually dropped and a disciplinary hearing for Brown would have followed, but Brown resigned.
Brown had previously been instructed to wear a body camera based on a previous incident involving questionable actions, City Pulse reports.
Now, Brenizer, of Grand Ledge, is negotiating a settlement.
Meanwhile, Brown is now working for the Lenawee County Sheriff's Department, despite the Sheriff of that county having knowledge of this incident, according to Eaton County Sheriff Tom Reich.
