A Complaint Against Tyler Police Department Has Launched An Internal Investigation

  An excessive force complaint filed against the Tyler Police Department has launched an internal investigation. On September 26th, Ashley Hill was pulled over at the Food Fast station on South Broadway. Police say they stopped the vehicle because they believed a man, who had several felony warrants may have been inside. Turns out he wasn't. When Ashley refused to let officers search her truck she was arrested. A short time later Ashley's boyfriend, Jeremy McGee showed up at the scene. Police say they took him into custody to find out his identity. Turns out he was not the guy they were looking for. Now, police say they are looking into whether or not excessive force was used that night.

  "We have all the code band video tape from the cars at the scene of the incident," said Officer Don Martin, Tyler Police Department. "It's all very well documented video as well as the reports themselves." Police Reports show 19-year-old Jeremy McGee was arrested Wednesday for beating his girlfriend, Ashley Hill. McGee was charged with assault family violence and resisting arrest. He was released yesterday. The man police were looking for, Kalop King, turned himself in the night of the incident.
