State officials disputed on Friday that they withheld newly released cellphone video of the arrest of Sandra Bland, a black woman who died in a Waller County jail cell several days after the escalation of a traffic stop.

Leaders from the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Attorney General’s Office avowed during a Texas House committee meeting that Waller County turned the video over to attorneys representing Bland’s family during a civil litigation discovery process.

Nichole Bunker Henderson, associate deputy attorney general for civil litigation of the state district attorney’s office, said that what was provided to the attorneys didn’t have a clear table of contents.
