officer assault soutla manClinton Alford Jr. was lying face-down on a South Los Angeles sidewalk, his hands behind his back, when he felt the first kick.

The 22-year-old admitted he didn’t remember all of what happened on that October afternoon, just minutes after a police officer yanked him off his bicycle. But he remembered being repeatedly kicked in the head and shocked with an electric stun gun in the back. His body, he said, “flopped like a dead fish.”

On Monday, Officer Richard Garcia, 34, was charged with one count of felony assault for using what prosecutors described as unlawful force when arresting Alford after he had surrendered.
