Update: Skateboarder vs. TTU Police Chief

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Texas Tech student says he will file a formal complaint against the university's chief of police.

Tuesday we told you 22-year-old Ryan Madrid was skateboarding down 15th street on Monday when he was told to get out of the road by the Texas Tech Chief of Police Ron Seacrist, who was in his personal SUV.

The two exchanged words and Madrid says Seacrist cut him off and caused him to fall off of his skateboard on his back. Seacrist says he did not cut off the student, but pulled closer so he could hear what he was saying.

We talked to Madrid today and he tells us he plans on filing the formal complaint after Thanksgiving break.
