Arrest Last Night at Massachusetts Avenue and Waterhouse - Police Department

A bystander's video shows four officers struggling with Ohene who was believed to be high on hallucinogenic drugs

The police then found the completely nude man standing in the middle of a traffic island. The three policemen converge on Ohene and throw him to the ground.

The student reportedly remains in a hospital under police watch. Eventually other officers were able to pry Ohene's arm from behind his back and handcuff his arms and shackle him at the ankles.

Bard said that, in an "ideal" world, the officers would have engaged "verbally only" with the student.

The violent altercation between Selorm Ohene, 21, and a half-dozen officers with the Cambridge Police Department has sparked an internal investigation into the use of force by the police.

Officer Steven Burke said in the incident report that after officers' efforts to calm down and reason with Ohene failed, he saw the man clench both of his fists and take steps toward another officer.

"Use of force was required in order to effectuate the male's arrest", Cambridge Police Commissioner Branville G. Bard Jr. said in a statement.

The 21-year-old student was later charged with exposure, disorderly conduct, assault, resisting arrest, and assault and battery on ambulance personnel, according to The Globe.

Drew McIntye joins RAW, The Miz goes to Smackdown
Now that Carmella has cashed in her Money in the Bank contract and won the Smackdown Women's Championship, it's her title to lose. Moments after he arrived, Angle stated that he would have to defend his title and it was Jeff Hardy who accepted the challenge.

He asked the public to analyze the officers' actions "in the context of a rapidly evolving situation" and added: "I absolutely do support the officers". A fourth officer helps restrain Ohene, and one of the officers can be seen striking Ohene. "If anyone ever had to constrain an individual against their will, they will know it's a very hard thing to do", he said.

The footage shows at least one officer repeatedly punching Ohene.

"We are reminded, as soon-to-be-graduates of an elite law school that we can not protect our bodies with our degrees - and that is why we also call our current students and alumni to embrace these demands as inclusive to all Black people, not just Harvardians". The officers held him to the ground until paramedics arrived, placed him on a stretcher, and put him in the ambulance.

The BLSA statement over the weekend noted that "a pool of blood remained on the pavement" as the ambulance carrying the student departed the scene Friday night.

"What is shown in the video is disturbing".

Harvard's president, Drew Faust, said Monday that while she did not yet know all the facts, the incident was "profoundly disturbing", especially as it occurred against "the backdrop of increasingly urgent questions about race and policing in the United States". We have high standards for our police officers in Cambridge. Each incident officers are involved with can have varying degrees of challenges and dynamics, which is why our officers undergo extensive and some of the most progressive training in country, particularly in the areas of Trauma-Informed Training, Crisis Intervention Training, Mental Health Training, and de-escalation techniques. McGovern also said "Cambridge affirms that Black Lives Matter, but it must be true in practice as well". "When confrontations can not be averted and include use of physical force, we must be willing to review our actions to ensure that our police officers are providing the highest level of safety for all". 'As Mayor, I will continue working with my colleagues to make sure that the horrific treatment of black Americans at the hands of law enforcement has no place in Cambridge'. Ronald S. Sullivan Jr., who is the director of Harvard Law School's Criminal Justice Institute, and Prof. He is a native of Ghana.
