‘I am deeply concerned by the conduct I witnessed today,’ said Interim Baltimore Police Commissioner Gary Tuggle in a statement.

‘While I have an expectation that officers are out of their cars, on foot, and engaging citizens, I expect that it will be done professionally and constitutionally. I have zero tolerance for behavior like I witnessed on the video today,’ Tuggle continued.
