A Wilmington Island family is upset, after they say four Tybee Island Police officers beat their autistic son.
A broken tooth, scrapes and bruises and two puncture marks from Tasers are the only reminders Clifford Grevemberg has of his visit to Tybee Island Friday night.
“They literally just beat the heck out of me,” he said.
A beating 18-year-old Clifford and his brother, Dario Mariani, said happened after they left the annual Tybee Beach Bum Parade.
They say they stopped to get food at the Rockhouse. Clifford is 18, but couldn’t go inside. Instead he sat on the curb. That’s when he said the trouble started.
