In an interview with MSNBC following his release on bond Thursday, Atlanta police officer Devin Brosnan said he's "looking forward to cooperating with any investigators who are interested in having a conversation about what happened that night."
Brosnan was booked and released Thursday before the interview.
"I have full faith in the criminal justice system," Brosnan said, adding that the booking process was quickly completed.
Brosnan's attorney Don Samuel told MSNBC that there "seems to be misunderstanding on the prosecutors' part."
"He's a defendant, he's not going to answer the DA's questions while they bring false charges against him," Samuel said.
Samuel said Brosnan has been fully cooperative with all investigators and plans on meeting with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation next week.
Asked if Brosnan had anything he wanted to say to the family of Rayshard Brooks, he said, "I think this is a tragic event."
"It's a total tragedy that a man had to lose his life that night," he added.
Brosnan said during his initial encounter with Brooks, he thought he was "friendly, respectful."
"I felt like he was potentially someone that needed my help. And I was really just there to see what I could do to make sure that he was safe," Brosnan said.
