Michael Martinez is seen backing away from Idaho Falls Police officer Sage Albright during a Sept. 25, 2021, incident at Martinez’s home. Martinez, who was shocked by a Taser during his arrest, is suing the department for using excessive force.

The Idaho Falls Police Department has released footage from a body camera that’s the subject of a recent lawsuit against the city.

The footage depicts the Sept. 25, 2021, arrest of Michael Martinez after police responded to a report of a domestic dispute between Martinez and his wife. The police department released the video after the Post Register filed a public records request.
