Seven people were arrested on trespassing charges Wednesday in Greensboro. They were seeking documents related to an incident of excessive force between former officer Travis Cole and Dejuan Yourse.

A group called Operation Transparency notified the City of Greensboro in December that they'd be conducting a public document search. They're asking for all documents pertaining to the investigation of former Officer Travis Cole to be released.

According to Operation Transparency's Andrew Garcés, only bits and pieces of the investigation were released, and the group is looking to fill in the gaps. The seven people were arrested at City Council offices and were charged with second-degree trespassing.

Cole resigned last August, before video of him beating Dejuan Yourse was made public. But there were still questions regarding the timeline of the police department's assessment of Cole's conduct.

The other arresting officer, C.N. Jackson, has since left the force.
