CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Two University of Cincinnati police officers involved in the Sam DuBose shooting investigation were named defendants in a lawsuit from a controversial 2010 death of an unarmed man at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Phillip Kidd and Eric Weibel were named defendants in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of 45-year-old Kelly Brinson. Brinson died in 2010 after he was tased and restrained by UC police inside of University Hospital.
Kidd was placed on administrative leave Thursday. Officer Kidd's body cam footage of the July 19 incident was also released. It shows Kidd having a conversation with former UC cop and now murder suspect Ray Tensing immediately after the fatal shooting of Sam DuBose.
"I think I'm okay, he was dragging me," Tensing said in the video.
"Yeah, I saw that," Kidd responded.
"Didn't' want to get run over, I was trying to stop him," said Tensing.
Officer Weibel was the reporting officer for the University of Cincinnati Police Department's incident report following the fatal shooting of DuBose.
