DJ Qualls

Vancouver Police Run-in

Caught on Tape

9/24/2011 11:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DJ Qualls screamed at a police officer after he was allegedly roughed up by the cop in Vancouver early this morning ... all while handcuffed and sitting on the sidewalk in front of a crowd of people.

TMZ has obtained video of Qualls after the alleged altercation went down, but while he was still in custody.

Qualls can be seen arguing with the officer frequently and eventually turned to the guy with the camera to explain his side of the story.

Qualls was eventually released without being arrested.

The Vancouver PD tells TMZ they have not received a complaint from Qualls yet, but have decided to "proactively" initiate their own investigation. They've reached out to him on Twitter as well.

Oh God, the humanity. This is so reminiscent of the Rodney King video that it made me physically ill. How can the police be so brutal. Thank goodness for TMZ and their crack journalist to shed light on this type of travesty.
God bless you TMZ. You suck.

Wrong video TMZ? Didn't see any roughing up, didn't see any thing that appeared to be arguing.
There was what looked to be a pretty calm discussion between the officer and DJ.

Saw him on the 101 freeway recently. He was right next to me in very bad, stopped traffic. Very aggresive. Once the traffic let up, he drove like a MADMAN.

TMZ producer need to learn that every piece of video that may show someone the public might know is worth the time and bandwidth that is wasted on it. I didn't see anything on this clip worth my time.

More hard hitting video as it appeared LIVE and re-transmisioned by the crack(ed out)weekend staff of TMZ. Harvey, you got to give these off days folks a budget to work with man. Last week it was those loser reality wannabes, and now updates on the most unconfrontational police confrontation I've seen in a long time.
Wish North Jersey cops were as mellow as these Canadian dudes.

Clearly some people don't read. The article specifically states:

TMZ has obtained video of Qualls after the alleged altercation went down, but while he was still in custody.

DJ: first of all I don't even know who you are or why you merit a mention in the tabloid press, but I will suggest to you that you not stick your nose where it doesn't belong and learn to keep your yap shut when interacting with cops twice your size.

This little bitch is trying to make some noise to bring his career back to life. Chicken neck little dooshbag needs to go back to Arkansas or wherever he came from. Career is over.

First of all, you jerk, Canada doesn't give free health care to Americans, and it just shows what an arrogant jerk you are to expect that. All the police did was detain this guy for an investigation, but if you think you are going to come to Canada and mouth off to our police like you do in that chithole called the U.S.A. then you are going to get your ass beat down. Stay out of Canada. We don't want your dirty American culture and selfish arrogance to infiltrate our youth culture. Go back to your ghettos and corrupt your own little bastards.
