Black UTC college grad beaten by police after alleged stop sign violation in Tennessee

Brandon Calloway. He’s a 25 year old college grad and member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. He was delivering for DoorDash when Oakland (TN) Police attempted to pull him over allegedly for failing to stop at a stop sign and driving 32 mph in a 20 mph zone.

Fearing for his life, Brandon drove 1/2 mile to his home and ran into the house. Police broke down the door, tased him, and severely beat him with their batons before dragging him out of the house to arrest him.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating the case that was caught on camera by loved ones.

The police followed him into a home in the town of Oakland, Tennessee, about 40 miles east of Memphis.

The officers chase the man upstairs into a den and begin to shock him with a Taser.

“Why are you chasing and hitting him?” the woman asks. “He has no weapons.” A woman can also be heard saying: “I need to call my mom. I need to call his mom.”

The affidavit does state the Calloway did not stop when the officers activated their lights.

Calloway’s attorney, Andre Wharton, told WMC his client didn’t know police intended to pull him over because officers didn’t initially activate their sirens.

“Brandon obviously was trying to figure out what’s going on here. Why are you guys following me? I’m not violating any law,” Wharton said.

The lawyer said he is left questioning how a traffic stop “turns into head injuries, hospitalization and significant pain and suffering.”
