COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Dash camera video has been released from a controversial traffic stop in Columbus County earlier this year.
On Monday Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten said the SBI and District Attorney determined Scott Collins did nothing wrong when he arrested Brandon Hamer in September, but the 25-year-old's family disagrees. They believe Collins used excessive force when he arrested Hamer.
Now that the investigation is over, Sheriff Batten says his department can finally release evidence SBI agents used during their investigation. Tuesday, we got a copy of dash cam video from that traffic stop, and it has many people talking.
