Aug 27, 2021

Body camera footage released by the Los Angeles Police Department on Friday showed an officer placing his knee into New Orleans Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes' neck during his arrest last month.

Hayes, after the officer's knee was in the side of his neck, gasped out, “I can’t breathe” multiple times.

The officer then pulled his knee off after another officer spoke up, and Hayes was tased soon after in the chest before he was eventually taken into custody.
