Police Commissioner Michael Harrison announced the arrest of Sgt. Ethan Newberg, a 24-year veteran, last week.
Newberg was "in the process of running a warrant check on a suspect when he claims a second man verbally challenged him, then became combative and aggressive," Harrison said.
Harrison says that the body-worn camera footage that he reviewed "tells a much different story."
Harrison said the footage showed the man speaking to Newberg then "walking calmly away." Harrison then said the footage shows Newberg chasing the man and grabbing him. Another officer tackled the man to the ground and put him in handcuffs.
"From what I saw, the man did nothing to provoke Sgt. Newberg whose actions were not just wrong, but deeply disturbing and illegal," said Harrison.
