White Mississippi deputies brutalise 28-year-old Black man, claims he resisted arrest

David Logan, 28, was arrested in Yalobusha County on July 18 after ‘seemed to be high on drugs’ and ‘resisted arrest’ at a traffic stop.

On Monday, his lawyer, Attorney Carlos Moore on shared a graphic photo showing 28-year-old David Logan with his wrists restrained with handcuffs behind his back and blood streaming down his face and dripping onto his bare chest and blue shorts following his July 18 arrest.

The Mississippi civil rights lawyer also said, Logan was brutally beaten by white deputies and cops while unarmed and in handcuffs.

Yalobusha County Sheriff Lance Humphreys defended his deputies, saying that Logan ran at them and resisted arrest, leaving two officers injured.

He added that Logan is charged with possession of the controlled substance ecstasy, two counts of assault on an officer, one count of resisting arrest and one count of possessing drug paraphernalia. He said because Logan was hospitalized, he did not have to post bond.

According to Moore, his client walked away from officers but wasn’t running away at a police roadblock in northern Mississippi’s Yalobusha County.

None of the officers involved has been placed on leave, Humphreys said. He said a grand jury will consider whether to indict Logan.
