Man Facing Years In Jail Cleared After Dash Cam Video Shows Scary Police Behavior

Charges weren't filed, and Jeter wasn't arrested. But while Jeter was driving away, a cop car pulled up behind him and flashed its lights.

Initially, Jeter was charged with eluding police arrest and assault. He was looking at up to five years in prison. But in February, Jeter's defense attorney saw footage of the actual event from the cop car's dashcam. And it makes Jeter look like a victim of overly aggressive cops, who appear to have smashed his window, bumped his car head on, pointed guns at him, and punched him in the face.

"The next thing I know, one of them busts the [car] door and there is glass all over my face," Jeter tells ABC.

ABC investigative reporter Sarah Wallace obtained the dashcam tapes, and two Bloomfield police officers have now been indicted for falsifying reports and, one of them, for assault. A third pleaded guilty early on to tampering.
