Police were dispatched to the Wendy’s around 10:30 p.m. and conducted a sobriety test on Brooks, who failed the test, according to the officials.

“During the arrest, the male subject resisted, and a struggle ensued,” the Bureau of Investigation said.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation later released a surveillance video that captured the officer who fired three shots to Rayshard’s back until he collapsed to the ground.
