Byron Williams was stopped by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officers in September 2019 for riding his bicycle without a safety light. He ran, and police chased him. He was eventually caught, ordered to lay on the ground and handcuffed.
That’s when an officer put a knee to Williams’ back.
He can be heard saying “I can’t breathe” 24 times in video from a police body camera, according to civil rights attorney Ben Crump who, along with Antonio Romanucci, is representing Williams’ family.
