Chief welcomes family to view officer’s body cam in viral arrest
Posted 8:21 pm, May 23, 2018

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- The Chesterfield County Police Chief said he would allow Elkanah Odembo and his family to view police body camera video from a tense encounter with a police officer Tuesday afternoon that resulted in Odembo getting tased and arrested inside his father's Chesterfield home.

A video showing a portion of the encounter, in which the officer grabs Odembo and tries to pull him out of his car, has been viewed more than 3 million times in less than one day.

That viral video, captured by Odembo's girlfriend, Elizabeth Smith, who was a passenger in the car, shows a minute and half of the incident. The full body camera video is four minutes long. It shows from when the officer first speaks with Odembo, who had pulled into his father's driveway before the encounter, and ends when the officer chases Odembo to the back of his father's house on Hollow Wood Court.

Police said the traffic stop was initiated because Odembo's car had a broken taillight. Odembo pulled into the driveway at his father's home, where the encounter happened.
