Man Beaten By Police on Halloween Charged with Resisting Arrest
|Matamoros shows bruises he sustained at the hands of police|
Matamoros is a college student with a history of volunteering at the Police Athletic League, of all places. His attorney, Ricardo Martinez-Cid, believed that prosecutors would drop all charges but was blind sided when his client was charged with resisting arrest.
"All he tried to do was cover his head until he passed out," Martinez-Cid tells WSVN, "and they beat him until he was unconscious, and they had to take him to Jackson Memorial Hospital."

Matamoros may have received the worst beating caught on the video, but several other citizens were manhandled by police.
