Beaumont father looking for answers after son's arrest


    The picture of DeMarcus Brown, posted onto Facebook, was the only way Greg Brown knew something happened to his son.

    "The way that looked on that picture, I wouldn't do that to an animal," said Brown.

    Brown said his son, DeMarcus, was at the Beaumont Walmart on April 5th when he was arrested by Beaumont Police.

    Brown said police told him his son was shoplifting but later said his son failed to show identification and evaded arrest.

    Brown claims his son told him he was hit and police used a taser on DeMarcus.

    "The people said he got down on his knees but they still tased him, beat him with a flash light, three knots on the top of his head, seven stitches in the top, and a fractured eye socket," Brown said about his son's injuries.

    Brown said he's upset and angry at the police department because he has not received any answers.

    DeMarcus Brown is currently at the Jefferson County Jail charged with felony theft and probation violation.

    "He's a good person. He's not a murderer, a killer, anything like that," said Brown.

    Chief Jim Singletary confirmed Internal Affairs is investigating and that all of the officers involved at the incident are still working.

    Brown said he wants others to come forward with any information if they saw what happened.

    "I've been here all my life. This is....it's hurtful. Like I said I'm angry. I'm mad. It's not over. I'm going to fight to my dying day, my last breath, justice will be served," said Brown.
