Ryan Dorm spent four months in jail after Corporal Donald Taylor claimed that the 19-year-old assaulted him and caused his gun to discharge in an incident last winter. Then surveillance footage was uncovered revealing what actually unfolded. Via Washington, D.C.’s FOX 5 :
Fox 5 has obtained surveillance video of a February 3rd incident involving a Prince George’s County police officer that seems to dispute his story about why his gun discharged.
A Cottage City 19-year-old spent nearly 4 months in jail after Corporal Donald Taylor claimed Ryan Dorm assaulted him and the gun went off as Taylor struggled with him. The surveillance video is from a business on Perry Street in the Brentwood area. Attorney Jimmy Bell, who represents Dorm, says the video shows Taylor out-and-out “lied” when he wrote up a report supporting assault charges against his client. Taylor has been indicted and faces a trial in November. Bell has filed a $10 million dollar civil lawsuit in the case.
