Video Released Shows Man Who Alleges Police Beating

Posted: Updated:

BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. -- The video speaks for itself. It shows a bloody, unconscious Robert Stout being wheeled into jail shortly after an encounter with the Bullhead City Police Department.

Stout is posed for his mugshot, with his head held up by an officer, before being placed in a cell.

The video shows Stout after he was cleared by a doctor at Western Arizona Regional Medical Center. An hour after entering the jail, he is wheeled out and taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center. He was then life flighted to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.

Officer Involved in Alleged Beating Has Prior Allegations of Abuse

The video was released in an information request placed by 8 News NOW. Stout was arrested on February 2nd after a foot pursuit with police. According to the police report, Stout was tased by officers and fell on his face. However Stout's family claims he was beaten by police.

There are discrepancies in the police report. In an addendum to the original police report, Corporal Brad Holdway claimed Stout was combative at the hospital and had to be restrained. However medical records, and video from the jail, shows Stout was unconscious. The addendum was filed 20 days after the incident

"It would be impossible for him to be combative," said Stout's mother, Theresa Stout. "An outside doctor said every bone in his face is fractured."

A second supplemental report written by another officer says Stout was unconscious at the scene of the incident. Medical records also show Stout was unconscious at both the Western Arizona Regional Medical Center and the Kingman Regional Medical Center.

An internal investigation by Bullhead City Police has been opened in the case.

Robert Stout has been charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs for sale, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
