GRAND RAPIDS, MI - A police car dash cam video obtained by MLive and The Grand Rapids Press shows the encounter between Grand Rapids Police officers and open-carry advocate Johann Deffert that sparked a federal lawsuit.
Deffert's suit - filed in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids - is against the city, Police Chief Kevin Belk, Officer William Moe and two other officers.
In response to request for video of the encounter, the city has released in-car video of the March 3 incident. The camera view shows only a portion of the encounter, but it captures extensive audio from the day in question.
