The Louisiana State Police, which has refused to release the footage, said in a statement that the "unauthorized release of evidence undermines the investigative process" but did not comment on the video's contents.
The case received renewed attention after the death of George Floyd, a Black man, in police custody last year set off nationwide protests.
The Louisiana video shows Greene apologizing to police and saying, "I'm scared," as they repeatedly hit him with a Taser, the AP reported.
Protests were planned on Wednesday in North Carolina, where prosecutors on Tuesday said they would not bring charges against sheriff's deputies who killed Andrew Brown, a Black man, during an attempted arrest.
