Man alleges Las Vegas police officer beat him


Mitchell Crooks made national headlines in 2002 when he videotaped a brutal police beating in Inglewood, Calif.

Nine years later, Crooks, now a Las Vegas resident, is again involved in a videotaped police beating -- except this time he is the subject.

Crooks, 36, pointed to blood stains on his driveway nearly a week after the fact, his nose still swollen from an altercation with Las Vegas police officer Derek Colling last Sunday.

He described his injuries as a broken nose and cracked ribs, though doctors called it "facial abrasions and a chest wall injury.'' He opted not to have an X-ray to say for sure.

"Too expensive," Crooks said.
