Denver (AP) A judge gave police and prosecutors until Oct. 28 to turn over documents of their investigation of an officer videotaped pushing a protester to the ground during the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
The order was issued Wednesday.
Alicia Forrest of Los Angeles faces a charge of interference in the incident videotaped by a Rocky Mountain News photographer. The video shows Denver police officer Scott Stewart shoving Forrest with his baton, saying “back it up, b----.”
Prosecutors say Forrest grabbed the baton and pushed it away before Stewart pushed her. No charges have been filed and Stewart remains on the job.
Defense attorney Dan Recht also requested files from an internal police investigation. Forrest's trial is scheduled for Dec. 16.
Recht wants the case dropped.
