In her first interview since the death of Tyre Nichols, Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn Davis said the police department has been unable to find anything that's substantiated the probable cause for reckless driving.
Speaking to CNN’s Don Lemon on Friday, Davis said, “We've looked at cameras, we've looked at body worn cameras, and even if something occurred prior to this stop, we've been unable to substantiate that. At this time.”
“So of course in an investigation, we begin to look at what was the probable cause for the stop? Where were the cameras? Was there some evidence on the body camera, on other cameras along those thoroughfares and we've taken a pretty extensive look to determine, you know, what that probable cause was, and we have not been able to substantiate that — it doesn't mean that something didn't happen, but there's no proof,” she said.
The city of Memphis plans to release video of Nichols' arrest sometime after 6 p.m. local time (7 p.m. ET) Friday, according to Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy.
Mulroy told CNN's Sara Sidner that the police report and the video of the incident do not overlap perfectly.
He said he has seen the police report filed in the incident — which has not been released to the public — adding he won’t give too much detail about what’s in it.
“Is there overlap between the police report and the events? Yes. Is there a perfect overlap? No,” he said. “And you know that's the kind of thing that I think the ongoing federal investigation might be particularly interested in.”
