According to Reyes, he was talking to law enforcement officers in Breckenridge during a traffic stop for another person. At one point, Reyes claims officers suddenly told him he was under arrest. Reyes says he asked why -- that's when he claims he was pepper sprayed, hand cuffed, and beaten by more than one person..
"(An officer) said 'I can do anything I want he said I'm a police officer,' but I said I didn't think there was a reason," said Reyes.
Reyes says he blacked out after the beating but remembers parts of what happened next.
"When they handcuffed me, the guy he started hitting me and it's all I can remember. I remember some things but when they take me to the jail, that's when they put me on the shower and that's when I wake up in a sense like I lost my mind because I can't remember nothing but wake up in the hospital in Abilene," said Reyes.
Reyes says he spent the next three days recovering from his injuries. The hospital told Reyes he had a concussion, needed a ventilator to breathe, had severe bruising and needed stitches.
"I don't think there was a reason for them to try or for them to try and say I was under arrest because I didn't do nothing," added Reyes.
The Stephens County Sheriff's Department says Reyes was resisting arrest and refused medical treatment. A statement also says a deputy also received medical treatment.
The Texas Rangers are looking into the incident.
