Pedestrian advocates say a Del Paso Heights man legally crossed the street before a police officer stopped him for jaywalking and repeatedly punched him in the face.
A California Office of Traffic Safety spokesman confirmed the group’s explanation of legal pedestrian crossings.
The incident drew national attention after bystander video captured the officer punching Cain in the face multiple times before police arrested the pedestrian. Within 24 hours, the Police Department dropped resisting arrest and obstructing officer charges against Cain, put the two-year officer on paid administrative leave and released video of the incident.
