University of Virginia student, 20, says he wasn’t drunk and did NOT show a fake ID before he was slammed to the ground by cops

A University of Virginia student whose bloody arrest sparked massive protests has spoken out for the first time since the incident.

A video showing 20-year-old Martese Johnson bleeding from his head while being held down by an officer in Charlottesville has been shared widely online and provoked accusations of police brutality.

Johnson, a junior at the university, said through his attorney Thursday that he was ‘shocked that my face was slammed into the brick pavement three blocks from where I attend school’ and would fight the charges.

‘I trust that the scars on my face and head will heal but the trauma from what the Alcoholic Beverage Control officers did will stay with me forever,’ his lawyer Daniel Watkins said.
