Police body camera video published by the Asheville Citizen Times on Wednesday has caused widespread public outcry over the beating and torture of an African American man accused of jaywalking and trespassing in a vacant parking lot in Asheville, North Carolina previous year by white police officers.
Asheville's police chief said she will resign if people want her to, in the aftermath of a leaked body-camera video showing one of her former police officers beating a man who was accused of jaywalking.
Hickman also faces preliminary charges of assault, with a judge issuing a warrant for his arrest on one count each of assault by strangulation, assault inflicting serious injury, and communicating threats on Thursday.
Hickman resigned in January just as he was about to be fired. Rush then runs, and Hickman is heard in the video during the chase saying "You are going to get (f*****) up hard core".
Rush responds, "It doesn't matter to me, man". A phone listing for Hickman had a full inbox that wouldn't take messages Friday.
The video showed Hickman and a trainee stopped Rush for jaywalking.
Hickman's charges stem from an August 24, 2017, incident in which he, along with then officer-in-training Verino Ruggiero, approached Johnnie Jermaine Rush for jaywalking.
Rush later told the newspaper that he stopped running shortly after taking off. Rush and Ruggiero quickly take him to the ground, the footage shows, and subdue him. However, Hickman, who is White, didn't listen to Rush, who was suspected of jaywalking and trespassing.
"All I ask of the community is don't judge the rest of those [cops] out there because of Chris Hickman", Lance said.

She says the paper has gotten copy editing and production help from a fellow Gannett paper in Greenville, S.C. It also plans editorials on a broader, but not indiscriminate, release of bodycam evidence to the public.
The two administrative investigations of Hickman, which concluded in December, took several months. He resigned instead at the beginning of a January meeting where he was scheduled to be terminated.
