CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - A man who accused a Clovis police officer of using excessive force has been arrested after authorities say he chased two men with a screwdriver in a child-custody dispute.

The Clovis News Journal reports (https://goo.gl/iUWLhN) court records show that 26-year-old Jorge Corona was arrested last week in connection with an altercation outside a Clovis home.

The skirmish ended with Corona facing two felony counts of aggravated assault.

Clovis police recently launched an investigation following a YouTube video of an officer slamming a handcuffed Corona into the asphalt during a traffic stop in August. Court records show Corona was charged with concealing identity and resisting arrest from the August incident.

Corona’s attorney, Dan Lindsey, said police didn’t thoroughly investigate the latest case and are trying to vindicate their officer.
