Actor DJ Qualls (Memphis Beat, The New Guy) was in Vancouver last Friday filming a guest spot on Supernatural when he had an allegedly violent encounter with local police. Qualls tweeted that he was “beaten by a Vancouver Police Officer for no reason.” According to Qualls’ feed, he was leaving a local cafe when he saw a man punch a woman. Qualls claimed he told an officer what he saw and was met with hostility. He tweeted, “He said if I didnt get out of there, he’s arrest me, I asked why and he tackled me, busted my face and handcuffed me.” He continued, “Was not arrested b/c was innocent. I was handcuffed and bleeding while the cop kept saying to me, ‘you think youre f—ing better than me? … Repeatedly asked 4 his badge number and he said if I didnt shut up, Id be taken in. Finally got a card as I was taken to hospital.”

Qualls was admitted to the ER, where doctors stitched up his chin. He sent out another tweet: “I cannot understand it. I’m sitting here, with a busted face in total shock. I literally did nothing wrong.” Vancouver police tell EW that they are investigating the incident.
