MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A musician says he’ll file a complaint against police on Friday after he captured his arrest on camera.

St. Paul Police arrested Chris Lollie in a downtown skyway in January.

Investigators say a security guard called them when he wouldn’t leave a private area.

Lollie says he refused to give officers his name because he hadn’t done anything wrong.

“Can someone please help me?” he can be heard asking in a YouTube video.

Thursday, police said he pulled away and resisted orders, so they Tasered him to safely arrest him.

Lollie says his daughter’s day-care class saw it happen and his phone fell to the floor.

“It’s like being powerless, just being powerless,” he said. “That’s how I felt.”

St. Paul’s police chief defended his officers’ actions.

They were not disciplined after an internal investigation.

Charges against Lollie were later dropped.
