NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It was a Metro Police stop caught on camera that has top brass "very concerned," and now Nashville's newly-installed Community Oversight Board is l ooking into the video showing an altercation between Adreneyonia Ensley and Metro Police Officer Barrett Teague at the Z-Mart off Dickerson Pike last week.

Tuesday was the first meeting of a Community Oversight Board committee since the incident.

The Director of the Community Oversight Board says its investigators will be speaking with those involved in the next couple of days.

"We've gone to the Z-mart, we've talked to employees that worked at the Z-mart - we located the young lady who was involved," said William Weeden, the Community Oversight Board Executive Director.

The Police Department's Office of Professional Accountability is also conducting an investigation at the same time.
