The Texas city of Schertzhas released body cam and dash cam videos of 18-year-old Zekee Rayford’s arrest. He was kicked and tased after police say he ran a red light and did not pull over.

The city released a total of 20 videos from the officer's point of view in the incident involving 18-year-old Zekee Rayford.

City officials say the video footage was not released earlier because they were waiting on authorization from the Guadalupe County District Attorney’s Office.

Schertz mayor Ralph Gutierrez said in a statement: “I fully understand the concerns and public outcry brought about from this incident. The City of Schertz is an inclusive community and one that celebrates all of our residents. My hope is that in every interaction with the City, residents feel respected, valued, and understood. Throughout every situation the City is deeply committed to doing what’s right and at this time, the right thing to do is be as transparent as we can, which is why we are releasing this footage”

Police say the night of November 2, Rayford ran a red light and did not pull over.

The family said he wanted to go to a 'safe place' and pulled up to his family's driveway, which they said is about a mile away from the incident.

The home surveillance video shows the teen get out of the car with his hands up and run towards the front door.

Another home surveillance camera angle shows officers yelling commands at Rayford to cooperate.

They deploy a stun gun and kick him repeatedly while he's on the ground.
