Motorist has no memory of police beating

HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

Adam Greene can't remember anything from when he was beaten in October 2010.

He was pulled over by NHP and Henderson police because they thought he was driving drunk; however, it turned out he was suffering diabetic shock.

"Sometimes there's sweating, disorientation, confusion - if you see the video, I'm sitting there with hands on the wheel not reacting to what's going on around me," Greene said.

After a search, officers realized Greene was diabetic and called paramedics. After Greene was treated he came to while in handcuffs.

While he can't remember the beating, he has seen it from the dash cam video, "It's disturbing to watch; it's a little bit surreal. It's strange."

While on the ground, swarmed by several officers, he's kicked in the head, cursed at, told to stop resisting arrest, and kneed in the ribs. Two of his ribs were broken. It took his body about two months to heal.

Greene says after he finally came to he was called over by one officer who said, "We're sorry for beating you up."

Greene was diagnosed with diabetes 26 years ago. He has a wife and four kids, one of whom is also diabetic, "I don't want him to think that this is normal, and that this is what happens to people who have medical emergencies. I want him to know that the police are there to help us," Greene said.

One Henderson sergeant was disciplined; their other three officers at the scene were not. NHP would not comment on whether their employees were disciplined.

Greene trusts the departments did the right thing, and says despite his ordeal, he has no ill will toward the officers, "The police officers do a really difficult job. We respect them for what they do."

Now that he and his wife have received settlements, Greene says they are ready to move on and put this behind them.
