Graphic video from 2019 shows Louisiana state trooper beating Black man

01:44

Investigators say within two seconds of initial contact, Louisiana trooper Jacob Brown began beating a suspect who was already on the ground. The video shows the trooper pummeling Aaron Bowman with a flashlight following a traffic stop. Bowman was left with a broken jaw, ribs and wrist, and required six staples to his head. Bowman is facing charges, including battery of a police officer. State police say Brown engaged in “excessive and unjustifiable actions.” He resigned from the force.
