DJ Qualls

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.

I see no problem except for Qualls being a D List actor acting like a jerk. The guy being confrontational on the video is DJ Qualls and not the cop.

You know, when you're a spindly mutherf*cker like DJ Qualls and you get caught up in shìt and weigh in at about a buck ten...you need to check yourself and shut your pie hole lest you suffer thew slings and arrows of the night life.

'They told me I think I'm more special than everyone else.'
Yup, that sounds about right. Let this be a lesson to american performers - STAY OUT OF CANADA. They will look for any reason to detain, arrest or harass you.

DJ was lucky. The VPD doesn't usually assault tourists, they usually murder them.

Yeah ,yeah, yeah, you are probably the offspring of a Viet Nam deserter from the 60's and 70's. So much hate for our country. You guys have big heads now that your dollar is worth more than ours. You just don't get it. When the U.S.A. goes, you go with it!
