Metro officer resigns after beating man at rail station

A Metro police officer who violently beat a man after he wouldn't leave a light rail station resigned Monday morning.
Officer Jairus Warren, who joined Metro in November, tendered his resignation after an internal investigation determined he should be fired for use of excessive force. The incident was captured on Metro's surveillance cameras used at all train platforms.
"You will see excessive force being used on the video," said Vera Bumpers, chief of the Metropolitan Transit Authority Police.
Warren and another officer, D. Reynoso, approached Darrell Giles around 7:30 a.m. It was not the officers' only contact with Giles, Bumpers said.
"They had dealt with him a couple of times earlier that morning," she said. "He was combative and was not cooperative on any occasions."
