Teen who accused MPD officers of wrongdoing charged again for resisting arrest

CREATED Mar. 26, 2013

MILWAUKEE - Earlier this year, Jordon Cain accused two Milwaukee Police officers of beating him up and using excessive force.

Two weeks ago, an internal affairs investigation found no wrongdoing by the officers, but now Cain finds himself back in a court room.

The 19-year-old faced a court commissioner on Tuesday afternoon. Milwaukee police arrested him over the weekend for carrying a concealed weapon, bail jumping and resisting an officer.

The I-TEAM got its hands on the police dashcam video of Cain's violent January arrest. Cain filed a complaint based on the arrest, saying officers beat him because they thought the gum in his mouth was drugs.

However, MPD’s investigation found the teen was resisting the officers' orders, but no drugs were ever found.

In the recent arrest, police came across Cain while on patrol. According to the criminal complaint, when approached by the cops, Cain ran. After a brief foot chase police say a loaded gun fell out of Cain's pocket. Now he's facing three additional misdemeanor charges.

Both cases are pending.
