Reynolds and his wife, Lauren, say Leavitt and Hutchinson hit Reynolds in the head with a blackjack, kicked him in the back and sprayed him in the eyes with pepper spray at close range following a traffic stop at the 7-Eleven in Montgomery on Sept. 26.
The Fayette County Sheriff's Department is investigating, and FBI officials have said they are assisting in the investigation.
Burrow also said that race - the fact that Reynolds is black and his wife is white - played into the alleged brutality.
Clifford said he believes there is a pattern in Leavitt's alleged attacks.
"My opinion is that Leavitt has a propensity to target African-Americans as drug dealers," Clifford said.
Last week Clifford sent a copy of a statement Burrow provided to the city of Montgomery about the incident involving Reynolds to Fayette and Kanawha County prosecutors, requesting that they bring the matter before a grand jury. Montgomery is on the Kanawha-Fayette county line.
A letter from Kanawha Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Scott Reynolds says that because the incident and arrest appear to have occurred in Fayette County, he doesn't have jurisdiction to present the matter to a grand jury.
Fayette County Prosecuting Attorney Carl Harris left Clifford a message, saying Clifford hadn't bothered to tell him what charges he was pursuing.
"I'd be more than happy to present charges before the grand jury," Harris says on the message left on Clifford's answering machine. "But I don't know who or what you're expecting to indict."
"This is so frustrating, being stonewalled everywhere you turn," Clifford said.
