Wijnen-Riems can be seen in the dash cam footage approaching Cicco’s car. Cicco getting out of his vehicle with both hands palms out and raised and then he only retreats into his vehicle as officer releases the K-9,” Benyo explained.He opened up Cicco’s car door and then began to attempt to extricate the man from his small SUV.Cicco told his lawyers he has been harassed by police in the past, so when Beaver Police Officer Jeffrey Wijnen-Riems attempted to pull over Cicco for a traffic violation in August of 2016, the man decided the best place to pull over would be at his home.Cicco’s lawyer, Geraldo Benyo, told reporters it only took 13 seconds to pull over, and that his client was being compliant for the entire duration of the traffic stop which took a violent turn for the worst. Police Chief Will Johnson said at a news conference that the dog, which he described as a Labrador mix, weighed about 40 pounds.Brooks was shot in the "upper torso," Johnson said.After obtaining the dashcam footage, the Beaver Countian also obtained audio of the officer’s call.
It would interact with people, just sniff, tail wag and stuff. It was around people all day."Larry Hamilton told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he lives in a nearby apartment but was homeless for several years and knew Brooks.
However, that was not seen in the video, nor was in possession of a taser.
The small-town police officer, who some are now calling a bully, then charged Cicco with multiple charges including fleeing and eluding and driving without a license.
As Cicco sees the dog approaching, he jumped back into his car and shut the door, as anyone afraid of police attack dogs may do.
Once again, Officer Wijnen-Riems opened the car door, this time aided by his dog, who began to viciously attack him, biting him under the arm, in the armpit, exposing gaping wounds. As the Beaver Countian reported last year, before the dash cam video was released, witnesses to the attack reported that the officers forced the dog to “eat” Cicco during the confrontation — after he was placed in handcuffs. Wijen-Riems claimed he saw Cicco reaching for what he thought was a taser.
