Tony Denunzio to be retried

The Santa Barbara County District Attorney's Office says it will retry a man despite some witnesses who said he was arrested with excessive force.

Tony Denunzio was arrested in 2011 on suspicion of DUI.

Dash camera video from the night shows a Santa Barbara police officer used a taser, along with palm and knee strikes, to get Denunzio to comply with the arrest.

District Attorney Joyce Dudley says the issue of his arrest "does not change the issue of whether Mr. Denunzio was driving under the influence."
