Lynchburg, VA - The Lynchburg Police Department is releasing more information about a tasing incident at a football game last Friday.
At a press conference Wednesday afternoon, Major Todd Swisher spoke about the investigation into the scuffle between officers and two teenagers.
Major Swisher made it very clear that the department believes the officers involved used the appropriate amount of force.
The incident happened in a restroom at the Heritage/E.C. Glass football game Friday.
Swisher says officers entered the restroom to talk to the 15 and 16-year-old boys, because someone alerted them of some misconduct.
Swisher says the officers questioned them, and the boys became aggressive.
He says one of the officers was head-butted, kicked in the face, and punched several times.
Tremaine Green, 16, was one of the boys involved in the incident. With his mother's permission earlier this week, Green told ABC 13 that he was tased after he had been detained.
Swisher says that is just not true, that the teen was being violent with the officer, and actions like that will not be tolerated.
"There are consequences to this type of behavior. Lynchburg Police Department will not tolerate this type of behavior, not now, not ever. Moreover, I sincerely believe the Lynchburg community will not tolerate this type of behavior either," said Swisher.
Green and his cousin 15-year-old Montavius Wells have been charged with assault and battery of a police officer and resisting arrest.
