Jacksonville Police Officer Matthew Alimurung Arrested for Battery

Jacksonville Police Officer Matthew Alimurung has been charged with second degree aggravated battery and falsifying a document as a public servant. According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO), Alimurung shot a suspect with a taser following a pursuit and tried to spit on him. JSO spokesman Pat Ivey held a press conference (video below) in which he said that Alimurung’s body camera was his undoing. The body camera footage contradicted the official statement of events given by Alimurung which is why he is also being charged with making a false statement.

Ivey stated at the press conference that he was not sure if a taser was involved or not, but most mainstream media outlets are reporting that the battery charge is based on a tasing. Ivey seems to imply that Alimurung struck the suspect multiple times. We cannot find an image of Alimurung. The JSO website does not include a mugshot with his arrest information.

The JSO posted the following information about Alimurung:
