Mayor wants review of arrest in St. Paul skyway

August 30, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The mayor of St. Paul is calling for a "full review" of the January arrest and use of a stun gun against a man who was sitting in a downtown skyway.

Mayor Chris Coleman said in a statement Friday that the city's Police-Civilian Internal Affairs Review Commission should investigate the incident.

Twenty-eight-year-old Chris Lollie says he in the skyway waiting to pick up his children. Bank security guards called police to report Lollie had been sitting in a lounge designated for building employees. The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/XXZiqN) reports police arrived and the situation escalated.

Lollie recorded the encounter on his cellphone, which was recently returned to him after charges against him were dismissed. Lollie posted the video online this week.

St. Paul police say Lollie resisted officers' orders.
