Father says police beat handcuffed son

February 11, 2014

PAWTUCKET—Lloyd E. Mumford, Sr. admits he wasn't there when Pawtucket Police arrested his son on a domestic violence warrant on January 30, but he says he doesn't like what he sees in a video taken by someone who was.
That video, posted by an anonymous person on Facebook and later removed, has prompted the 47-year-old Woonsocket resident to speak out about the actions of three patrol officers that he believes were excessive. He maintains the officers used unnecessary force with a police baton and pepper spray while trying to take his 24-year-old son, Lloyd E. Mumford, Jr., into custody. Read the full story including Mumford's comments in Wednesday's Times.
