The Dallas Morning News had to wait seven months for this record, which the Dallas Police Department initially refused to release in September 2016. When the Attorney General's office ruled it was public and forced the department to release it in April 2017, it told a different story: Timpa was exhibiting behavior that was "aggressive and combative in nature." According to his family's lawsuit, this record leaves out key details, including the part of Timpa's arrest where a DPD officer reportedly kept his knee pinned in Timpa's back for more than 14 minutes.
