Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw told ABC Philadelphia affiliate WPVI that the officer has been on restrictive duty since April pending the outcome of the internal investigation into the incident.

Edwards said police reform is a priority in Giddings' case. He is also seeking monetary damages.
