Dauphin County, PA — In June of last year, local college student Jarrett Leaman, 24, had a bit too much to drink and was arrested for public drunkenness. When he was taken to jail, despite being entirely compliant on the video, this student would end up with multiple cop fists to the face, a broken orbital bone, and strapped to a restraint chair — entirely unconscious.
Leaman’s arrest was captured on jail surveillance footage and it shows him walk into the jail compliant and listening to officers’ commands. He appears to be so compliant that the officers remove the handcuffs.
However, as they walk the drunk student through the metal detector he appears to accidentally turn the wrong way at which point he is shoved by a cop. When Leaman reacts to the shove by simply turning his body, all hell breaks loose.
As the video shows, Leaman is tackled to the ground by multiple officers with his face taking the brunt of the impact. It was this fall that broke the young man’s orbital. The officers then jump on top of him, with one officer putting his knee into Leaman’s neck, likely exacerbating the man’s injury.
Clearly in pain, the young man writhed on the ground in agony, which of course, was interpreted by the cops as “resisting.” One of the officers then wheels in a restraint chair as they drag Leaman’s body into it. For good measure, several of the officers are seen punching the man after he is seated in the chair.
One of those officers seen delivering several blows to Leaman’s shattered face is Harrisburg police officer Christopher Mackie. Mackie was the arresting officer who has a less than stellar past. In fact, this cop has been hit with excessive force allegations before and was not supposed to be a cop.
After the cops put Leaman in the chair, they place a spit mask on him and wheel him into another room. He appears entirely unconscious. Showing exactly why he shouldn’t be a peace officer, Mackie follows the restraint chair into the other room, lifts up Leaman’s spit mask, pulls out his personal cellphone and takes a trophy picture — laughing and giving the thumbs up as he does so.
After the brutal incident, Leaman was hospitalized and an internal investigation was opened. Two correctional officers were suspended without pay pending the results of the investigation, while Mackie was placed on desk duty. However, during the investigation, Mackie quietly resigned to avoid any repercussions.
District Attorney Fran Chardo would then rule that no excessive force took place and that Leaman caused his own injuries. Apparently Chardo thought Leaman was punching himself in the face as he was being restrained in the chair.
