“WACO, Texas (KWTX) Waco police late Friday afternoon released details about an incident in which a handcuffed suspect was choked and refused medical treatment following a routine traffic stop.

Three patrol officers were suspended after the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office previewed dashcam video of the arrest and determined that one of the officers grabbed the suspect, Qualon Deshon Weaver, 35, by the neck, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said in a press release Friday.

Street Crimes Unit Officers Kevin Spicer, Adam Beseda and George Neville were all placed on administrative leave pending the completion of internal and criminal investigations.”
