(WECT)  A Wilmington, North Carolina police officer involved in an incident in October has been cleared of any wrongdoing, but new dash camera video showing exactly what happened has started a debate in the community over if excessive force was used. 

video shows WPD K-9 officer, Stafford Brister, lifting his police dog and forcing it through the driver's side window right into the driver's lap. Brister was one of the law enforcement officers who responded to a chase in Wilmington.

The video shows the police dog attacking the driver. Later, an injury report detailed that Johnnie Williams had lacerations to his face.
