Police say new body cam footage clears officers of abuse

Posted: Updated:

Burlington Police have released body camera video of an altercation involving officers and a South Burlington woman. The chief says it clears his officers. Police say they are now working with the woman's family to try to move past this.   

It all started at Cumberland Farms on Pine Street in Burlington. Police say they spent more than an hour trying to get Logan Huysman, 18, into custody. Huysman then took to social media claiming abuse, something Burlington's chief says they had to address. 

Huysman confronted Burlington Police June 22. Police say she was unconscious in a running car with two other people when they approached.

The chief says they released 16 minutes of what was a more than 90-minute effort to get the teen into custody. Chief Brandon del Pozo says they are making this part of the video public to show why they approached the car and to address the allegations of abuse made by Huysman.

Del Pozo tells WCAX News that Huysman's father thinks this was a stupid mistake. The chief says now that they've addressed the false claims against officers, the department is working with the family to help her avoid this type of behavior.

Huysman pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor charges, including assault on a police officer.
