After an investigation, Raymond Lomeli, 21, was arrested on suspicion of obstructing a public officer.

The video statement by the Nye County Sherrif’s Office showed bodycam footage of deputies arresting Lomeli in support of their statement that Lomeli was not thrown to the ground and never requested to see a warrant.

Statements against Nye County deputies by the Never Give Up Youth facility were proven false by the collection of video clips.

There is an ongoing investigation of the Never Give Up Youth facility.
