NSW teen’s violent arrest investigated

A naked disoriented 16-year-old boy screamed for help as he was beaten earlier this year by NSW police officers whose conduct is now being investigated in a Sydney public hearing.

Video footage of some of the arrest of the teen, who later said he had taken the drug acid, was shown on Monday at the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC) hearing in Sydney.

Counsel assisting the commissioner, Terence Rowles, said four officers responded to a call that the boy was acting inappropriately before they used OC spray, a Taser and physical force including batons to restrain him in a Byron Bay laneway.
