Oregon Cop Throws Handcuffed Man Head First Into Concrete Wall on Video; Receives Probation

Oregon Police Officer Brian David Scott Assault Handcuffed Inmate

Jail surveillance video: Milton-Freewater, OR Police Officer Brian David Scott shoves a handcuffed man into a concrete wall causing severe head and back injuries. Later, he was sentenced to probation and a small fine.

Recently released video shows Milton-Freewater, Oregon Police Officer Brian David Scott shove a handcuffed man into a concrete wall in September 2016. That man, Jeffery Allen Fields, suffered multiple severe injuries to his head and several vertebrae in the assault. It’s quite clear on the video that Fields has no way of stopping himself from slamming into the wall with his hands cuffed behind him.

Note: If you have videos, stories, upcoming events/protests, or personal interactions with the police (and/or “justice” system) that you would like to share, send them to us and we will do everything we can to bring it to the attention of the world. In addition, you can visit the Nevada Cop Block resources section for information and links to the rights of citizens when dealing with police, during which you should always be filming.

It appears that the motivation for that attack by Officer Scott is that Fields was being verbally argumentative. However, at no time whatsoever on the video, even afterwards, did he act in any way physically resistant or combative toward either of the officers present. Obviously, there is no justification for Scott’s deliberate attempt to inflict harm on a man who was unable to defend himself.

In addition, after Fields was injured there is no sense of urgency about getting him any sort of medical attention. Instead, Scott and his partner, Officer Anthony Martinez, just take him into another room and hold paper towels to his head. In fact Officer  Martinez’ reaction, or more properly lack of one, to Officer Scott’s actions is pretty telling. It’s almost like arrestees being abused is a common sight at the Milton-Freewater  Police Department.

Eventually, Fields did make it to the hospital for what has been described as emergency treatment. As can be seen in the photo to the right, that included a head full of staples to close the wounds to his scalp.

In spite of the seriousness of those injuries and the absolutely unjustifiable nature of his attack on Fields, in April of 2017 Officer Scott was allowed to plead down to lesser charges resulting in a sentence of probation, some community service, and a $500 fine.

That’ll show him.


Note: the audio at the beginning of the video (in the exterior of the building) was affected by some sort of interference that causes a lot of static. That clears up once they go inside.
