VIDEO: Forceful Arrest of Intoxicated Brothers
Two brothers claim Tukwila (Wash.) Police officers used excessive force when taking them into custody during a traffic stop in May.
Charles Chappelle and Jahmez Amili say officers threw them down, punched them, and used pepper spray during the 2:43 a.m. arrest. The pair were showing erratic behavior and refusing commands from the officers, according to a police report quoted by WABC.
Officers also said the men, who were intoxicated at the time, resisted arrest.

If you look at strictly video which media and activist will it can seem excessive, however the actions of the arrestee'sare blocked by the officer's bodies. having arrested numerous drunks even on the ground they will try to fight you or pull away. I personally will go with the officer's statements.
