Video Shows Man Being Attacked By Police After Leaving Atlantic City Casino
Victim's Mom Says His Head "Looked Like Hamburger Helper"
A New Jersey man who was the victim of horrifying police brutality after getting kicked out of an Atlantic City casino is suing the cops, according to reports.
Despite the vicious attack, 20-year-old David Connor Castellani faces charges for attempted assault on an officer, resisting arrest and attempting to harm a police dog.
The attempting to harm a police dog accusation is perhaps the most dumbfounding since the video surveillance of the attack shows the dog biting the victim while he was defenseless.
The possible reason the victim was kicked out of the Tropicana casino? According to Opposing Views, a local news report stated that it was because Castellani was underage.
The video aired Friday on a New Jersey TV station.
The attack occurred in the early morning hours of June 15.
According to Castellani’s father, the incident left him with permanent injuries, including nerve damage and some paralysis. Press of Atlantic City reported that the victim’s mother said that his head “looked like Hamburger Helper” after the savage beating.
“I certainly don’t see aggravated assault on a police officer or a K-9. Quite frankly, I don’t see resisting, either,” the lawyer for the victim told Press of Atlantic City.
One of the cops involved in the assault reportedly has had at least three similar allegations made against him prior to Castellani’s beating, but was allowed to remain a cop.
Despite the alleged use of extreme violence to arrest Castellani, the police department doesn’t think there was any misconduct. The chief of police told NBC10: “I saw the tape, and I saw no reason to suspend or remove the officers from their regular duties.”
The cops charged Castellani as he was apparently yelling at them from across the street.
