11:27 a.m.

The final case Worthy discussed involved Reynard Burton, 19, of Detroit who died of a gunshot wound to his chest after a DPD officer fired a single shot. 

Burton ignored DPD officers' commands to stop during a traffic stop and fled. 

The shot was fired after Burton fled from police.

Worthy said there is insufficient evidence for the officer to be charged.

11:21 a.m.

The fourth case is the beating of David Bivins, who was allegedly beaten by an off-duty Detroit police officer at Meijer.

Bivins allegedly had a verbal exchange with Officer Lonnie Wade, 65, at a vestibule in Meijer. Bivins pulled out a cell phone, then Wade came over to him and grabbed his wrist, telling him he was under arrest. 

Bivins pulled away to resist Wade's attempts, and then Wade quickly deployed his baton and began striking Bivins.

Wade has been charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, felonious assault and two counts of misconduct in office.

11:18 a.m.

The third case is about the alleged assault of D'Marco Craft and Michaele Jackson by Detroit police officer Robert Billingslea, 26.

Craft recorded an assault on Jackson by Billingslea at a Mobil gas station in Detroit, where Jackson was pepper-sprayed and beaten.

Billingslea is alleged to have disposed of Craft's cell phone in a trash can in the store.

He has been charged with assault with intent to commit great bodily harm, aggravated assault, obstruction of justice, misconduct in office and assault and battery.

11:15 a.m.

The second case Worthy spoke about was the alleged beating of a man, Deoanta Stewart, who was allegedly punched by an officer, and was not immediately taken for treatment for serious injuries to his face and eyes. 

Additionally, the officer, Edward Hicks, 28, allegedly asked the defendant to lie about the altercation.

The officer is charged with assault with intent to commit great bodily harm, aggravated assault, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office.

11:12 a.m.

At the press conference, Worthy began talking about the ATV crash. After describing the details of the ATV crash, she said the second-degree murder charge could lead to life imprisonment. 

The manslaughter charges could lead to 30-years life imprisonment. The other MSP officer and supervisor were not charged due to insufficient evidence.

11 a.m.

According to online documents, a "recommendation for warrant" is shown for Mark Bessner on charges of second-degree murder and two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection to the deadly ATV crash involving a Detroit teen.
