Overview Help icon

On October 1st, 2012, Javier Arrazola Jr. was misidentified as a "parolee" and chased through a gated apartment complex in Reseda. When Javier was cornered, he was handcuffed and then beaten and tasered multiple times by Los Angeles police officer Charles Wunder. Suffering substantial injuries, Javier was left on the concrete floor without any CPR administered. Once paramedics finally arrived, it took them 20 minutes to transport Javier to the Northridge Hospital Medical Center, only about a mile away, where Javier was pronounced dead.

Javier was not on parole or probation, and was unarmed.
