DA Says Use Of Force By Redmond Police Justified...But Not The Arrest

BEND, OR -- Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel announced Friday that two Redmond officers used justifiable force during an arrest last month. The arrest of 25 year old Darian Belles was caught on video. The officers involved were Bryan Holman and Chris Wooten. Hummel says there was a struggle as Belles tried to grab a Taser they used on him. Central Oregon Daily News reports, however, Hummel also concluded the arrest of Belles itself was not justified because there was no probable cause that the suspect had been involved in drug sales.  Officers Holman and Wooten remain with the Redmond police force. City officials declined to disclose whether either officer faces disciplinary action.
