RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A judge is ordering the release of video showing a new confrontation involving a man prosecutors say was beaten by three law enforcement officers.

Wake County Superior Court Judge A. Graham Shirley ruled Friday in favor of releasing most available video after news outlets including The Associated Press went to court to request they be made public.

The video taken last Sunday was expected to show some of what led to 29-year-old Kyron Hinton being charged with kicking a sheriff’s deputy. Hinton had reported a shooting near his mother’s home, while his mother was also calling 911 to request help with Hinton.

A Wake County sheriff’s deputy and two state troopers were charged with felony assault for allegedly hitting Hinton during a confrontation two months ago.
