Austin Police Complaints

Amid police protests, Austin oversight office logs 159 formal complaints of officer abuse

… Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services officials said Friday that at least 41 people were injured during the past several days of protests. Those injuries caused by less-lethal rounds include an open skull fracture with soft-tissue damage; a fracture to the lower jaw and soft tissue damage in the cheek; a severe hematoma between the brain and skull; and an open chest injury with broken ribs.
