An angry white police officer repeatedly yanked on the dreadlocks of a handcuffed black man who was arrested after a dangerous high-speed chase in Waterloo, then hit him twice on the back of the head, as heard in a video obtained this week by The Associated Press.
Officer Adam Wittmayer was disciplined after an internal investigation into the April 19 incident. Details of the discipline are confidential under Iowa law. Waterloo director of safety services, Dan Trelka said, “The discipline was significant.”
