GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - A watchdog group plans to demand documents in a police misconduct investigation when its members gather at Greensboro city hall.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports (https://bit.ly/2jt9GFa) GSO Operation Transparency plans to conduct “a people’s document search” connected to the arrest of Dejuan Yourse by former Greensboro police officer Travis Cole in June.

Group member Andrew Garces says group members will meet Wednesday. The group demanded the file Dec. 13 from the Greensboro City Council, which later voted not to release the remaining documents.

Yourse was punched in the face and thrown to the ground from his mother’s porch by Cole during an arrest June 17 recorded by officers’ body cameras. Cole and Officer Charlotte Jackson were investigating a possible robbery at the address. Both have left the department.
