Vancouver Police Run-in

Caught on Tape

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.

update_bar
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.

Sounds like it was a good idea that the VPD busted his a$s. If he was actually trying to intervene in a fight, he would have gotten his little girl sized body pounded into oblivion.

This is just a continue acts by cops through out this nation. It is time cops get jail and fired, instead of being protected by their unions. People need to speak up and out about the abuse Cops are doing.

Maybe if the little guy didn't come up here and try to play American super hero by sticking his nose into something that wasn't his business in the first place he wouldn't get himself into trouble. Plus his face doesn't look "busted" at all. Drama Queen

"They've reached out to him on Twitter as well."

ahaha.. He probably told the cops the infamous line quasi celebs use all the time. "Do you know who I am?"

As someone who lives in Vancouver, wish you guys wouldn't portray our cops in such a bad light. They're too nice and lenient, especially compared to what I saw when I lived in California. If anything, our cops are too nice where we have crackheads and bums on the streets not scared of anything. During the riots we had teenagers throwing metal at them and our laws prevent our cops from doing anything. Unbelievable really...

Cops in the USA won't tolerate that crap and our cops could learn a thing or two from you guys south of the border.... Now as for press portraying our cops as being pansies I'm up all for it because maybe that press would push them to be more deliberate and aggressive in how they handle our criminals.

Our Vancouver cops do not beat people up for no reason. I've seen them show a bit of force when someone starts beaking off and disrespecting them, but I seriously doubt this clown was beat up for no reason. Perhaps he was detained for being a douchebag....
