DORAL – Dramatic new cell phone video showed a Miami-Dade Police Officer restraining a teenager on Haulover Beach on Memorial Day; and that 14-year-old youngster and his mother say police overreacted when they arrested him.

But Police said they had to restrain the teenager because he gave them “dehumanizing stares,” clenched his fists and appeared threatening when he walked away and refused to obey their repeated orders.

Maurissa Holmes used her cell phone to capture the incident that happened late Monday morning at the beach near 108th Street and Collins Avenue.

The video shows a Miami-Dade Police Officer with his arm around the neck of 14-year-old Tremaine McMillian.
