Tucson police show video of jail workers beating man
TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucson police have released video of off-duty Pima County corrections officers beating a man outside a Tucson bar last month.
The Arizona Daily Star reported the video released Wednesday shows the workers coming out of the Buffet on Sept. 19 and launching into, what police said, was an unprovoked attack on a man unlocking his bike.
Tucson police spokesman Chris Widmer said four other people were also hurt in the attack.
The footage, which aired on KVOA comes from a surveillance camera at the bar.
Seven corrections officers have since been arrested, including two for allegedly hindering prosecution.
Pima County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Tom Peine said all seven have since been fired.
