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.

The guy in the black tshirt looks like a trick. Qualls was probably cruising and some stuff went down with the cops when he wouldn't "move along".

"Do you know who I am?. I'm DJ Qualls, I was in a awful movie and I think I'm famous, that's who I am."

Last movie I saw Qualls in was The Core. He's on a TV series that I don'*****ch. He's a 'D' list actor...not to be taken seriously.

Police seem to be all over the news these days for beating people up. I guess the digital era makes it harder for them to get away with it. I hope these bad apples don't ruin it for the other hard working men and woman police officers.

Never heard of this nasty little weasel. I lived in Vancouver for 17 years and know this area well. On a recent visit back, I noticed that the clientel on Granville Street is a little rougher these days, even though the area itself has gone more upscale. Late on a Friday night, the cops downtown have to deal with all the drunks going in and out of the bars, as well as all the crackheads/homeless mental cases in the all too close, Downtown Eastside. These cops have a tough job. If they cuffed him, he probably deserved it. I think he is just trying for a little publicity to inflate a dead/non-existant career. Don't let the door hit you on the way out, buddy.
