BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Family members viewed graphic body-camera video this week of a Black man who died in Louisiana State Police custody following a high-speed chase.

Their attorney says the footage clearly shows troopers beating the man, jolting him with their stun guns and dragging him face-down across the pavement.

Gov. John Bel Edwards met Wednesday with the family of Ronald Greene but left before the man’s mother and sister watched a half-hour of the footage of the May 2019 encounter that is now the subject of a federal civil rights investigation.

Edwards has come under increasing pressure to publicly release the video.
