Video of Man Pushing Teen Onto DTLA Tracks Released by LAPD


The Los Angeles Police Department has released surveillance, bodycam and cell phone video of a man who allegedly pushed a young boy onto the train tracks and attacked a construction worker in downtown L.A. last month.

Husie Outing III, 47, died in December of undetermined reasons about an hour after police arrested him at Pershing Square on the day of the incident.

Police say officers responded to reports of an unprovoked attack on a 14-year-old boy on a platform on Metro's Pershing Square Station. After Outing and the teenager landed on the tracks, bystanders assisted the teen to get him back up. Outing was able to climb back onto the platform on his own.

The LAPD released footage of the incident on Monday that showed two people falling onto the tracks and making it back on the platform before a train arrived in the station.

Footage of Outing apparently trying to flee the station after the incident was also released by police. Cell phone video showed at least four men holding Outing down until police could arrive and detain the man.

One of the men can be heard telling police that Outing was "on something, brother."

One of the officers can be heard threatening to tase Outing, but didn't not end up doing so. Police called for an ambulance after Outing received injuries to his head and hands.

The county's Department of the Medical Examiner-Coroner has not yet released a cause of death, pending the results of toxicology results, authorities said.

The incident is still under investigation, agency officials added.
