An officer reportedly saw the incident occur as he was reviewing surveillance footage.

Officers encountered Woodley inside the Target and attempted to take him into custody. As officers escorted Woodley to the front of the store, court documents allege he repeatedly made efforts to stop walking and go into an aisle away from the front, which caused officers to lose their grip on his arms.

The victim reportedly said Woodley used his iPhone during the incident so officers took his phone as evidence to determine if there is proof of any additional incidents.

According to staff directory, Woodley served as the Director of Player Personnel for MTSU’s football team.
