HUNTSVILLE, AL — The office of Madison County District Attorney Rob Broussard said police did not break any laws or statutes when pulling over and arresting 80-year-old Huntsville resident William Frazier on Feb. 1. 

Broussard’s review was requested by the City of Huntsville after Frazier filed an $8 million claim against the city, where Frazier accused police of beating him during his arrest.

Mayor Tommy Battle held a press conference shortly after Frazier’s claim where he said the police acted within policy and procedure during the arrest, in which Frazier fled from police for about 3 miles. Battle said he had seen the dash cam video of the incident and said local police will be applauded and vindicated when the video is released. The Times has requested a copy of the tape.

Frazier has four arrest warrants from the incident, including attempting to flee and elude police, driving without a license, driving while under the influence and failure to yield the right of way.
