In videos released on Friday (local time), which were captured by the body cameras of several police officers involved and a stationary camera, Tire Nichols can be seen being stopped in his vehicle by the police officers. The officers then pull him out of the car and push him to the ground. There is a first altercation, after which Nichols flees.

Additional shots show how several police officers hold Nichols at another crossroads and brutally beat him repeatedly with fists and a baton. Nichols calls for his mother loudly and clearly several times. At least one police officer repeatedly kicks him in the head while the others pin Nichols to the ground. After that, emergency responders drag the critically injured Nichols to a nearby emergency vehicle and lean his torso against the side of the vehicle, as seen in the video images.
