A black man in London was allegedly kicked by a police officer as he was pushed to the ground in a caught-on-camera incident that’s now under investigation.
The video shows eight officers trying to restrain the man on a sidewalk, as one of them appears to kick the man in the legs while others tackle him to the ground. Two officers finally detain the man.
The encounter happened on Friday in Croydon in South London, according to My London.
The Metropolitan Police said they’re investigating the incident and that “the actions of each officer seen in the footage will form part of this assessment.”
It’s unclear why the man was being arrested.
