Following the Spring Valley High School incident between Deputy Ben Fields and an unnamed student, IJ Review asked a police officer to demonstrate the use of force in an arrest.
Sgt. Chad Tolstedt, a 16-year-veteran of the Monroe Police Department walks through the process in this video.
Sergeant Tolstead explains in the video: “I don’t think the general public really understands what it’s like to have to affect an arrest for someone who doesn’t want to go to jail. We can’t just walk away from these scenes.
“We have to affect arrest and, often times, taking someone physically into custody who doesn’t want to go is not pretty”
