City releases police body cam video of arrest


Evanston police now have released police body cam footage of the May 27 arrest of Trenton Alexander Hunt that caused controversy after Hunt posted his own video of the incident online.

The Police Department’s Office of Professional Standards is continuing to review the incident.

Interim City Manager Erika Storlie, in a statement last Saturday, said that, if the officers’ conduct was not appropriate “please be assured that actions will be taken and individuals will be held accountable.”

Jonah Meadows of Evanston Patch has combined the various videos and posted the resulting compilation to YouTube.
