WARNING GRAPHIC-- North Little Rock PD releases dash cam video in officer involved shooting

WARNING: Graphic content. The video was edited by the NLRPD before being released to the media. Sergeant Brian Dedrick said the prosecutor allowed the release of the selected footage and the editing was done so "the media could easily see the weapon during the struggle." In the video, police question several individuals over a traffic stop, including Charles "CJ" Smith Jr. At some point during the conversation, police off screen begin an altercation with CJ and he is tackled to the ground.
