The authorities had denied The Post and Courier’s open-records request for the footage. Later in the video clip, as Chatfield breathes heavily and cries out in pain, an officer is heard explaining that the motorist was brought down with the stun gun “rather than fight him in the street.”“He denied verbal commands several times,” the officer said.
