Star Tribune reported:

After a late-night dinner and three beers at Rudolph’s Bar-B-Que, 42-year-old Derryl M. Jenkins dropped off his girlfriend at his Brooklyn Center home and headed to a fellow musician’s house in north Minneapolis to hear his new music.

He never made it.

Jenkins was stopped by Minneapolis police at 3 a.m. Feb. 19 on Penn Avenue N. for allegedly going 15 miles per hour over the speed limit. He ended up at North Memorial Medical Center, his face bloodied and bruised.

He required seven stitches above his eye after six officers punched and kicked him while he was face-down in a snowbank. He was treated at the hospital and then jailed for four days.
