VIDEO: Man Arrested for Open Carry In Park
The Colorado Springs Police chief has taken responsibility for the illegal arrest of a man who was openly carrying a handgun in a city park, and promised to provide proper training to officers.
At a Tuesday City Council meeting, Chief Pete Carey acknowledged he must "make sure my guys are trained and they have the right resources, that they're taking the right action," reports The Gazette.
On July 21, Colorado Springs PD officers arrested 24-year-old James Sorenson in a public park during PrideFest. Sorenson then posted a cell phone video of the arrest on YouTube, reports Fox21 News.
In the video, Sorenson argues with officers and asks to see a public sign prohibiting weapons prior to the arrest.
