A warrant was issued for the Luke’s arrest after he failed to show up at court for a domestic violence case. Officers confronted him Sunday near a convenience store around 2 a.m. Luke’s family members claim the officers didn’t mention the warrant before they tried to arrest him.
The nearly three-minute video shows Luke being punched by police, taken to the ground, pepper sprayed and choked. He now faces charges of assault and criminal mischief stemming from the incident, and is due to make a court appearance Thursday on those counts.
Authorities have not said whether anything else took place that is not seen in the video.
