Dallas Police Officers Beat Motorcyclist After Pursuit (Video)

(Note: The beating starts at approximately 2:55)

DALLAS — Police chief David Brown announced on Wednesday that the three police officers involved in a southern Dallas beating on September 5 will face criminal charges.

Brown's proclamation came as the department finally released dashcam recordings of the incident, nearly 10 days after it happened.

The chief and other city leaders urged citizens to remain calm while the facts of the case are reviewed.

The tape that was released Wednesday shows Dallas police officers Paul Gregory Bauer and Kevin Randolph beating motorcyclist Andrew Collins following a brief pursuit. He does not appear to be resisting arrest.

News 8 has learned that there may be as many as five related recordings that are being withheld by the department.

In the video released on Wednesday, one officer is seen striking Collins with a baton five times. The second officer can be seen punching the suspect twice with his fist and then with his knee.

"This won't be tolerated. Today my expressions to you speak of that intolerance," Brown told reporters.

Investigators will recommend that Officer Randolph be charged with assault, official oppression and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. Randolph was fired today for failing probation.

A total of 22 officers showed up where the police pursuit ended in the 4900 block of South Lamar Street. Six officers actually placed their hands on Collins.

A second tape shows Officer Henry Deutsch turning the dash-mounted camera away to obscure what was happening.

Chief Brown said Deutsch; Officer Daniel Malouf; and Officer Robert Kamphouse were also on top of Collins, but no cameras recorded that part of the apprehension.

Officer Bauer will be charged with assault, official oppression and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.

Officer Duetsch will be charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.

Officers Jeremy James Francis and Kamphouse will remain on restricted duty; Malouf will remain on desk duty.

Other officers involved will be interviewed, and the FBI will conduct an investigation.

"Every citizen deserves a measure of respect," Brown said. "As chief of police for the city of Dallas, I expect citizens to hold me accountable for insuring that Dallas officers treat all citizens with fairness and compassion."

"No one is above the laws of this great country and I expect officers observing any of their peers violating the law or the department’s rules to report those violations immediately," Brown said.

"No one incident should define the character, integrity, or leadership of the Dallas Police Department," the chief added. "The public’s trust and confidence in the Dallas Police Department cannot and will not be compromised by the misconduct of a few officers."

Chief Brown reached out to the community Wednesday night and even attended the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, where Andrew Collins and his family are members.

The pastor talked to the Collins family on Wednesday; they are said to be struggling with what happened on September 5.

The chief said Collins was checked out at the jail and later at a hospital. He suffered bruises, but no broken bones, police said.

Brown said he does not rule out the possibility that race was a factor in the police action against Collins, but added there is no evidence that Collins was targeted because he is African-American.

Police have dropped charges of resisting arrest against Collins.

    • Who can't love someone that actually doesn't understand the Constitution or established "Proper Police Procedures". Enforcement is the job of the police, not punishment. DPD has a long history of this behaviour, including the murder of a 12 year old in the back of a police car that the police tried to justify then conceal...sadly....a dead 12 year old in the back of a squad car is a tough thing to explain away.

    • I live in a city with some of the most corrupt police in America. We know all about dirty cops here. I've still got no sympathy for the guy on the bike, though. He could have killed someone.

      On another note, I noticed that you're flying an American flag next to your name, but you use the British spelling of the word "behavior". Was that just a little typing error, or are you another limey mettling in American affairs?

    • I'm an American...and just got back from two months in far eastern Afghanistan...so my spelling was just a typo...as to your issue of police conduct

      I suspect it will all be good to people that YOU deem worthy...and when they beat you or a friend down...you'll cry foul and ask for an investigation....

    • You may find yourself in a different set of circumstances, but I don't have friends who steal motorcycles they don't know how to ride or lead the police on dangerous police chases. Tell you what though, if one of my friends ever does I'll demand a copy of the dashcam to make sure he got his ass kicked!!

  • Pretty much got what he deserved and more. Lucky the cops didn't shoot him off the bike before he killed someone.

  • A couple of love taps is what the negro deserved..they didn't harm him. If you're a douche you should be roughed up to teach you a lesson. He's lucky they didn't shoot him dead.

  • I didnt see nothing wrong. If they want to do something productive and press charges on people they should charge the police chief for all the kick backs hes been taking and giving his son (a cop killer) a police escort to his funeral

  • Unless the other, unreleased recordings show something different, the officers will beat the charges against them. What little this video showed was a suspect who started to run and who did seem to be struggling even when on the ground. It also seemed to show the officers delivering blows to the muscle groups on the arms and legs as they are often trained to do to make the guy stop struggling.

    There might be additional, damning evidence.

    • There are at least seven camera angles....and the Officers charges will be upheld and the DA is seeking felony charges against a veteran officer that went back to his car and changed the camera angle to avoid coverage....so guess what...you're wrong...these guys are toast.

  • Funny how you some of you tools above say the biker got what was coming, yet the police chief disagrees with you and so do I.

    Better said, if you don't want to loose your job as a cop you had best control your emotions.
