He says evidence shows Rolfe kicked Brooks as he laid on the ground, officer Devin Brosnan stood on his shoulder, they never told Brooks he was under arrest, and no medical attention was given for over 2 minutes. Brosnan has decided to testify on behalf of the state, says the DA.

The bodycam footage from Brosnan shows that Rolfe tells Brooks before the struggle, “I think you’ve had too much to drink to be driving. Put your hands behind your back for me.” Rolfe also pulls out his handcuffs as he puts Brooks hands behind his back.
