Fresno PD release bodycam video showing teen with autism being handcuffed

The Fresno Police Department has released the officer bodycam footage from the incident where officers handcuffed a 16-year-old boy with autism and epilepsy.

Fresno Police say they came to the El Pollo Loco restaurant in central Fresno after his family called 911.

Officers lead the teen outside and attempt to put him inside their police cruiser, which is met with a struggle. That's when the teen begins to have a seizure.

A California mother is outraged after police officers responding to her teenage son's epileptic episode put him in handcuffs and tried to force him into a patrol car instead of calling him an ambulance.

The altercation is being reviewed by the Fresno Police Department's Internal Affairs Unit and the city's Office of Independent Review.
