Brandon Wilson talks to police at the emergency room
Officer Murray prepares to strike Wilson
Blood can be seen on the holding cell wall.
"If anything, you could hurry up and see if they can get me any of those painkillers, " says Brandon Wilson. It's March 19, and Wilson is in the emergency room.
Wilson and Morrilton police officer Clint Murray were involved in an altercation at the city jail. Wilson received several bruises and cuts and required stitches and staples to close his wounds.
Handcuffed to the gurney, Wilson explains, "Because we'd been together for five or six months."
It all started at the home of Wilson's former girlfriend. Neighbors saw Wilson snooping around her home. They called and warned her not to come home.
Then Wilson appeared inside the neighbor's home unannounced.
Police arrested him for public intoxication and trespassing.
At the jail, Wilson and Murray can be seen going into a holding cell. There's a struggle in the shadows and then the officer strikes Wilson several times with his baton.
Eventually, Wilson is left laying by the doorway. When he comes to, blood can be seen on the cell's wall.
Special Prosecutor Jack McQuary says Wilson claims Murray struck him behind the right hear with his baton first.
But McQuary says the officer's baton is carried on his left side behind his holster. In one shot, Murray is carrying clothes in his left hand and could not have delivered the first blow the way Wilson described.
McQuary says the video shows Wilson trying to tackle officer Murray. Murray uses the baton in his left hand striking Wilson on the back.
Wilson and his attorney's allege that officer Murray committed battery and used excessive force during the incident.
Special Prosecutor McQuary has recommended that no charges be filed against Murray.
Attorneys representing Wilson say they have no comment about the special prosecutor's ruling. They say they expect to file papers in federal court concerning the incident.

Murray resigned from the Morrilton Police Department the day after the incident. He had one other incident on his record from shooting Jermell Thompson in 2008 during a shoplifting episode, which a judge later ruled was reasonable.
