Three Moore, Oklahoma police officers have been placed on paid administrative leave after allegedly beating Luis Rodriguez (pictured above) to death in front of his family early Saturday morning, reports News9.com.

At just past midnight, February 15, Nair Rodriguez, the victim’s wife, got into an argument with her daughter, Lunahi, eventually slapping the girl. As she angrily walked away, her husband chased after her in order to calm her down and stop her from driving away.

According to Rodriguez, that’s when officers intercepted him and asked for identification.

The situation escalated from there.

According to Lunahi and Nair, he tried to bypass the officers to stop his wife from driving off because she was so angry. They said officers took him down and it escalated.

Lunahi Rodriguez said that five officers beat her father to death right in front of her, in the parking lot of the movie theater.

“When they flipped him over you could see all the blood on his face, it was, he was disfigured, you couldn’t recognize him.”

By the time it was all over, Nair Rodriguez said that she knew her husband was dead.

“I saw him. His [motionless] body when people carry it to the stretcher,” she explained. “I knew that he was dead.”

Nair says her husband was only trying to defuse the fight she was having with her daughter. She said when police asked her about it she told them what happened.

“I told them I hit her and he was just trying to reach me. Why didn’t they arrest me?”


Rodriguez told News 9 that she recorded her husband’s beating death on her phone but police confiscated it at the scene and have not returned it.
