"When you punch someone in the face that is seated on the ground with their hands cuffed behind their back, our allegation is that is such terrible misconduct that it should merit dismissal," says 23rd Judicial District Public Defender Jake Lockert.
Lowe's girlfriend Tashawna Alberd took the video on her cell phone that day.
"They're trained to do this a way and then they turn around and do it another way because nobody's watching them," says Alberd. "They should get fired."
It's her voice that's heard screaming at the agents.
"I was telling them to stop because they was hurting him," says Alberd. "I had to do something to protect him."
Alberd faces drug charges from that day, but even though Lowe has been behind bars since his arrest, he has not been charged. Judge Robert Burch said it was still too early in the judicial process to hear the motion to drop the charges. It's yet to be seen if and when Lowe will be indicted by a grand jury. Lockert says if that happens, he plans to refile these same motions early next year. Agents with the Drug Task Force were at the hearing, but did not answer any questions. The TBI is also investigating this case.

House passes 2-year moratorium on dam barriers
May 21, 2013 19:12 GMT
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The U.S. House has passed legislation that would put a two-year moratorium on an Army Corps of Engineers plan to erect barriers to prevent people from fishing below dams on the Cumberland River.
U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield heralded final passage of the Freedom to Fish Act on Tuesday. Whitfield was a leading proponent of the measure in the House.
The bill, introduced by Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., was co-sponsored by Sens. Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Bob Corker of Tennessee.
Whitfield said the bill thwarts, at least temporarily, an effort to "take away some of the best fishing in Kentucky." Passage of the measure, Whitfield said, allows time to work out a permanent solution.
The measure now goes to President Barack Obama for consideration.
