St. Louis Officer Pulled From Patrol After Filmed 'Beating'

January 07, 2011  | 


The St. Louis Police Department is investigating one of its officers captured on video striking a man with a retractable baton, using pepper spray and handcuffing the man, yet failing to file a police report.

Officer Dustin Ries, 37, was taken off the streets on Tuesday, while the department investigates the matter, reports the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

The encounter occurred at about 2:30 a.m. on New Year's Day at a Shell gas station, after the subject told the officer to, "Shut Up." Ries was off duty and providing security from a substation on the property.

GAS STATION SECURITY GUARD pulls someone out of car, beats and maces him while on ground.

This is assault no matter how you put it.

How do you stop a guy like that, how do you defend yourself?

Even if this guy is charged and its understood his actions were bad, what if the bystanders defended the guy. What if someone shot the guard or pushed him off the guy. Who do you think the cops around the corner would help.

That's his second time caught doing this.
