BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- The man behind the camera who recorded a confrontation with Boise Police said he's filed an official complain with the department.
Gavin Seim, who was traveling through Boise with his family, began video taping a traffic stop on Franklin Boulevard by Boise Police Sgt. Lori Sperry. The confrontation between Seim has gone viral, sparked debate and an investigation by Boise PD.
"In no way did I impede the officers ability to do her duty," Seim's complaint states. "Nor did I behave in a threatening or overt manner. Officer Sperry acted without professional courtesy to myself or the driver she had stopped."
"Further, Sperry assaulted me in taking hold of my arm. Had I acted in the same aggressive
manner towards the officer, I would likely be charged with a crime."
Boise Police said Monday it cannot comment on on-going investigation and referred to the Boise Police Chief's initial comment.
