Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – An attorney representing a disabled man whose tasing was captured on a Centro bus surveillance video has asked the District Attorney’s office to drop its charges.

Brad Hulett has been charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

His attorney, Rick Guy, met with District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick on Tuesday, asking that the charges against the disabled man be dropped.

Guy elaborated that he asked the DA’s office to turn over evidence they are using in the case, including video from outside the bus, 911 calls, and other materials.

He plans to file a motion to compel the turnover of evidence and then make a motion to dismiss.

Fitzpatrick declined to comment on the substance of the discussion.

He did confirm that the DA's office is investigating the incident and that they should have a decision on the matter sometime before Aug. 29, when Hulett is scheduled to appear in court.

Hulett says he plans to sue the City of Syracuse, Onondaga County, and Centro in connection to the incident.
