The video, which was recorded last February, came from a Brentwood, MD store. In it, Corp. Donald Taylor is seen hitting 19-year-old Ryan Dorm...with his gun. The gun seemed to fire as he hit Dorm.
Taylor had reportedly been in pursuit of Dorm, who he thought robbed a gas station. After the incident, he told authorities that Dorm was the aggressor and had tried to pull Taylor’s weapon. Taylor claimed he struck him in self-defense. The video clearly shows otherwise.
Dorm was arrested and spent four months in jail before the charges were dropped...
...Dorm is suing both the police department and Taylor for $10 million. Taylor is being charged with second-degree assault.
