A civil rights lawyer from Mississippi says his black client was brutally beaten by white law enforcement officers during a traffic stop earlier this month, but a sheriff says the man seemed to have a lot of drugs and resisted arrest.
On Monday, lawyer Carlos Moore shared a graphic photo of 28-year-old David Logan with his wrists held with handcuffs behind his back and blood flowing over his face and dripping onto his bare chest and blue shorts after his arrest on July 18.
According to Moore, his client ran away from officers but did not run away from a police roadblock in Yalobusha County in northern Mississippi.

Moore said officers used a stun gun and defeated Logan, who was unarmed and handcuffed at the time. The 28-year-old had to be treated in two hospitals for a broken bone near his left eye.
He said that Logan is now suffering from double vision and sleeping problems.
& # 39; They have made it so rough that it no longer has any clothes, & # 39; said Moore.
Yalobusha County Sheriff Lance Humphreys defended his delegates and said that Logan approached them twice and two officers were injured during the argument
Moore said he didn't know the name of the person who took the photo of his bloody client in front of a wall of cinder blocks.
In a separate interview on Monday, Yalobusha County Sheriff Lance Humphreys said the officers are white, but disputed the rest of Moore & # 39; s account.
& # 39; That doesn't even come close to what happened & # 39 ;, Humphreys, who is also white, told The Associated Press.
Humphreys said officers from the Sheriff Department, the Water Valley Police Department, and Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics checked the driving licenses at a roadblock when they stopped Logan.
The sheriff said officers told him that Logan got out of the vehicle and ran towards them twice.
& # 39; He lowered his shoulder and tried to go through it, & # 39; said Humphreys.
He said the officers used a stun gun on Logan and arrested him but did not defeat him.
An officer whose knee was injured during the confrontation is now working at a desk and needs surgery, and another officer is injured in the leg straps.

Humphreys said Logan has been accused of possession of the controlled substance ecstasy, two counts of assaulting an officer, one count of opposing arrest and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He said that because Logan was in the hospital, he didn't have to post a bond.
None of the officers involved were on leave, Humphreys said. He said that a large jury will consider whether to sue Logan.
