Dover, DE – White Police Officer Charged With Assault On Black Man, Video Released

Dover, DE – A police dashcam video shows a black suspect being kicked in the face by a white Dover police officer who was charged this week with assault.

The video released Thursday by police is part of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union over the August 2013 incident.

The video shows Cpl. Thomas Webster IV, who was responding to a disturbance at a gas station, kicking Lateef Dickerson. Dickerson, responding to commands to get on the ground, is on his hands and knees.

Webster was arrested Monday after a grand jury indicted him for second-degree assault.

A previous grand jury declined to indict Webster last year, and the U.S. attorney’s office found no civil rights violation.

The ACLU subsequently sued police on Dickerson’s behalf.
