Video footage and report on excessive force from the Bay Citizen

Langan, who was released late Wednesday after roughly five hours in police custody, intends to file a complaint with the University of California Police Department on Monday accusing authorities of using excessive force. She says as officers approached, she stuck out her wrist and said, “Arrest me.” Instead, they grabbed her by the hair.

Perhaps the most telling part of this report is that even UC Berkeley Associate Vice Chancellor Claire Holmes could not understate the severity of these events:

Asked to review the video on Friday, Claire Holmes, a spokeswoman for UC Berkeley, promised a thorough investigation.

“The images are extremely disturbing,” Holmes said. “Obviously we will be looking into the incident and appropriate measures will be taken. We will have to go through an investigation.”
