The family tells us the 17-year-old Brownfield Varsity football player was thrown against a fence and then tackled by officers after being kicked out of his little brother's football game.
"It was just unnecessary what happened," said Tyra Nolan.
Nolan said her teenage son Zehreus Williams was on the sidelines of the 7th grade Cub football game on Thursday night, something the varsity football players are encouraged to do.
But when Zehreus questioned the referee's call he was kicked off the sideline.
"He's like 'Throw the flag ref' and that's when the ref was like 'Get out of here,'" said Jaylon Nolan, Zehreus' younger brother who was playing that night.
Officers then told him he had to leave the stadium.
The teen's family said Zehreus said nothing to the police, but they said he was attacked by two officers anyway.
"Officer Flores came around and said 'Hey you need to leave' he was already leaving so he shoved him against the fence and from no where Officer Doris tackled him pretty hard and he's about 300 pounds and he tackled him pretty hard and he's pretty bruised up," said his mother.
Nolan said she didn't know what was going on until she saw all the videos people took of her 17-year-old son on the ground in handcuffs.
"There were a lot of people around yelling he never touched the officer he was already leaving that's unnecessary to use the kind of force they used with him."
She said one officer had his knee in her sons back and another was pressing his face in the ground.
"He wasn't the only one out there yelling at the refs but he was the only one that was told to leave," said his mother.
When I asked his brother Jaylon if he heard his big brother use any cuss words he shook his head no and said, "He just said throw the flag."
Zehreus was charged with assault, a Class B misdemeanor.
"Other people have walked up to me and asked me 'What happened?' and 'Why did they do that, it wasn't necessary, he didn't do anything,' said Zehreus' grandmother.
She said this isn't the first time she's heard of Brownfield police officers harassing people.
"This stuff has got to stop," she said, "He could have hurt my grandson and that's what I'm mainly concerned about."
