Cheyenne Police are responding to a video of an arrest that has been posted on Facebook along with claims police used excessive force in the Friday evening incident.

The video was posted by a woman who says she is the aunt of Yzail Gauna. Her name is Nadia Gauna and on her Facebook page, she accuses police of pulling her nephew from a car and beating him for no reason.

That version of events is disputed by Cheyenne Police, who say Gauna was resisting arrest.

Cheyenne Police Give Their Version Of The Arrest

Cheyenne Police spokeswoman Alex Farkas gave Townsquare media this statement:

''The Cheyenne Police Department is aware of a video circulating on social media depicting a subject who was resisting arrest.

Yzail Gauna, 26-years-old, was found to have outstanding warrants during a traffic stop on Friday, April 5 at approximately 11:30 p.m. The warrants were for domestic battery and probation violation.

As officers attempted to make the arrest, Gauna became physically violent, grabbed an officer’s Taser and used it against him. An affidavit was completed for felony assault on a peace officer. Guana was cleared medically and booked into the Laramie County Jail.''
