(CNN) – A St. Louis man has filed a lawsuit alleging excessive force in a case that involves an officer turning off a dashcam video of that man’s arrest.
At one point in the video, a female officer can be heard saying: “Hold up, everybody, hold up. We’re red right now so if you guys are worried about cameras just wait.”
The phrase “we’re red right now” indicates that a camera is recording.
A second dashcam continued to record.
Video of the April arrest shows officers stopping a vehicle being driven by Cortez Bufford, whose car roughly matched the description of one possibly involved in an area shooting.
