PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix police officer was arrested for allegedly assaulting a handcuffed man after prosecutors reviewed footage from his body-worn camera.
Police said late Friday that 23-year-old officer Conner Orth-Smith has resigned.
Authorities announced the arrest a week after Orth-Smith responded to hospital security guards who called for help with a man who refused to leave the property.
The man was arrested for aggravated assault on a police officer.
Authorities say that days later, a prosecutor reviewing the footage flagged excessive use of force by the arresting officer.
Neither police nor prosecutors have released the body camera footage.
