Incident 37

Date Jul 15, 2016
Department Buffalo Police Department
Officers Joseph B. Acquino , Mark C. Hamilton , Michael J. Acquino

Four officers followed Arthur Jordan into the PCS Metro store and told him he was wanted for questioning. When Jordan said he wouldn’t go with the officers, who lacked both a warrant and probable cause for an arrest, the officers closed in on him, sprayed him in the eyes with copious amounts of pepper spray, punched him in the head and eventually restrained him enough to perform a search.
