Police: Sandra Bland arrest video ‘not edited’

The dashboard camera video showing the arrest of Sandra Bland by a Texas state trooper was not edited, the state's Department of Public Safety said on Wednesday, rejecting widespread controversy over cuts in the video. The department has now released an updated version that does not have any cuts.

"The video has not been edited," said Tom Vinger, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety. "The entire video was uploaded to include the audio and video of the conversation the trooper had by telephone with his sergeant, which occurred after the arrest. Some of the video during this conversation was affected in the upload and is being addressed."

Several hours later, the department posted a new version which showed no abnormalities.

"To eliminate any concerns as to the efficacy of the video DPS previously requested the FBI examine the dash cam and jail video to ensure the integrity of the video," Vinger added.
