Police chief speaks for first time over video of former NFL player's arrest

HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — Several Atlanta leaders and pastors held a rally to support a former NFL player whose arrest was caught on video and went viral.

The video was posted on social media and shows Desmond Marrow being arrested and slammed to the ground in a shopping center parking lot. Marrow is a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back.

On Monday, Marrow said he wants the officers fired.

Channel 2's Tyisha Fernandes also spoke to a woman who is suing one of the officers for excessive force on her.

Lauren Law said the same officer who choked Marrow, also dragged her out of a broken window. She was at a rally to support Marrow that took place Monday afternoon.

“He should’ve already been off the force when it happened to me and it shouldn’t go ignored any longer. He needs to go,” Law said.
