During Brandon Ellingson's arrest on May 31, one of his friends took this photograph before Trooper Anthony Piercy put handcuffs on him. Then, the friends said, they watched the trooper pull a Type III life vest over Ellingson's head. Experts say Piercy should have used the Type I or II life jacket that is visible inside the boat.
