Family questions teen’s forceful arrest at Indiana festival

According to GN-TV News Hammond police are reviewing body camera footage after a family said police officers roughed up a teenage boy Wednesday night at the Festival of Lakes.

Dominic Garibay, 15, said he was trying to meet up with his family to leave the festival when a police officer pushed him. Police said that’s not true.

Facebook video shot by Garibay’s older brother captured the end of the incident.

Police said body cameras show how the incident began — but that footage has not yet been released.

“The young man starts to fight and starts to resist arrest," Hammond Police Lt. Steve Kellogg said. The young man has a different outlook. See for yourself. What do you think?
