NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The Associated Press has obtained and released exclusive video of the deadly arrest of 49-year-old Ronald Greene by Louisiana State Police in Union Parish near Monroe.

Troopers initially told Greene’s family he died from injuries suffered in a car crash.

The 2019 arrest is the subject of a federal civil rights investigation.
