Amazon driver, not officer, charged after controversial arrest in Warren

A Black Amazon driver forcibly arrested by a white Warren officer last month in an incident that sparked outrage is now facing two misdemeanors. 

The Macomb County Prosecutor's Office charged Jaylen Bond, 23, with failing to obey an officer’s traffic order and operating without a license on person, WWJ reports.

Prosecutors reportedly did not charge Bond with resisting arrest, as police requested.

The office last week declined to charge the cop seen on top of Bond in video of the June 10 incident, saying he did not violate laws or policies when he stopped Bond and asked him to show his license.

From WWJ:

Sheriff's officials say Michigan law requires that a licensee display his or her operator’s license on demand of any police officer, and that the officer in this case gave the driver ten requests for his license, as well as ten commands to place his hands behind his back.
