From The Seattle Times
Seattle police have launched an internal investigation into the arrest in June of a suspect by three officers who used their fists, batons, a flashlight and a Taser to subdue the man at the department’s Georgetown evidence unit.
The arrest, which was captured on a police surveillance video, came a day after the man was mistakenly released from the King County Jail.
Daniel Macio Saunders, 46, had been arrested and jailed June 6 for investigation of burglary and vandalism after he allegedly broke into a Rainier Valley church, naked and covered with blood. Saunders has hepatitis C, a contagious and dangerous blood-borne illness, which resulted in the cleanup of the church being treated as a hazardous-materials situation.
