VIDEO: N.J. Troopers Use Force On Disabled Man

The New Jersey State Police have acknowledged that troopers used unreasonable force on a mentally disabled man during a May 16, 2009 traffic stop.

The state police made the admission Friday, after The Star-Ledger informed the agency it would post the story and video of the encounter on its Website.

The incident came about while officers searched for burglary suspects in Warren County. James Bayliss, 21, was in a car stopped by troopers at a blockade.

In video captured by a cruiser's dash cam, a trooper later identified as Staff Sgt. Richard Wambold Jr. can be seen frisking Bayliss. A few seconds later, Wambold throws Bayliss to the ground and begins kneeing and punching him in the face.

Wambold and Trooper Keith Juckett then dragged a limp, handcuffed Bayliss toward a parked patrol car and rammed his head against a tire.
