BEAUMONT - Demarcus Brown of Beaumont is accused of assaulting a police officer at the Beaumont Wal-Mart in April. But Brown claims officers brutally beat him.
According to police reports obtained by 12News, Brown was trying to steal a TV.
The report states that when Brown saw officers he abandoned the TV, led officers on a chase throughout the store, then resisted arrest with more officers just outside the store after fleeing a second time.
The affidavit states Brown, "forcefully pulling his arms away,” but the report made no mention of Brown attempting to punch or kick officers.
Brown's claims of police brutality are still being investigated by the Texas Rangers.
Brown's next court appearance is on the 14th of this month.
