BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)- The Baton Rouge Police Department is investigating an online complaint made by LSU Wide receiver Koy Moore. According to the Baton Rouge Union of Police the body camera footage of the incident has been reviewed by multiple attorneys, including their own.
“The union urges patience to everyone waiting for the video to be released. Regrettably the only rights that have been violated at his point is the officers due process. The union stands firmly behind our officers and trust the video will prove that their actions were just,” according to a press release from Baton Rouge Union of Police.
The department’s legal advisor said that BRproud can resubmit our request for that video once the case has concluded.
Moore posted on Twitter that Baton Rouge Police officers pulled their guns on him assuming he had a gun and drugs. Moore goes on to say the officers screamed at him and violated him several times, even as going as far as trying to unzip his pants in search for a weapon he says he told them he didn’t have.
The officers involved are currently on paid leave.
