The Maryland Attorney General's Office released body camera video from one man's fatal encounter with Anne Arundel County Police.

The video begins as officers order two men out of a vehicle to investigate a call about guns and drugs in the 900 block of Waugh Chapel Way in Gambrils on October 29, 2023.

At one point, one man, identified as Lavaughn Coleman, 21, takes off running as one officer tries to handcuff him.

The video shows that during the brief chase, one officer, identified as Cpl. A Stallings, orders Coleman to stop, or he will use his Taser.

Moments later, the video shows Cpl. Stallings use his Taser. Coleman is hit, and falls to the ground.

The officers place Coleman in handcuffs, but during the arrest, Coleman can be heard apparently having difficulty breathing. Blood can be seen on the ground where he fell.

After Coleman is placed in handcuffs, officers call for help from the fire department, get a medical kit from their vehicle, and ask a bystander to call 911.

Coleman died on December 15, 2023.

The second officer involved in the incident was also wearing a body camera, but the video shows the camera being knocked off the officer just as the chase begins.
