[WATCH] Formal Complaint Filed Against Colorado Springs Police Following Release of Video

COLORADO SPRINGS – A formal complaint has been filed against the Colorado Springs Police Department following the release of a YouTube video.

In the video, a man claims his rights are being violated and he was arrested for only being “suspicious” to two Colorado Springs officers in the Falcon Division.

The citizen says he refused to tell his identity, so two officers put him in the back of a patrol car and told him that he could either

release his identity, be ticketed for disorderly conduct, and released or he would be arrested for disorderly conduct and booked into the El Paso County Jail under John Doe and would be held there until he gave up his identity.

The man admits that he chose to tell the officers his identity and was released without even a ticket.

After the release of the video, it has been viewed over 21,000 times.

The Department announced on Monday that it is “researching the incident” and it “will be investigated by members of the Internal Affairs Section.”

“The Colorado Springs Police Department prides itself on respectful service to our community and takes very seriously the security of its facilities, officers, employees, and the public,” said a spokesperson from CSPD.
