Baltimore City Police Officer Suspended: Alleged Attack on Suspect Caught on Tape

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:18 PM EDT

A Baltimore City police officer has been suspended after videotape surfaced of him allegedly using force against a suspect whose car was being pursued.

During a police pursuit on Monday, the suspect's vehicle went off the road and collided with parked cars. A group of officers pulled the suspect out of the car and videotaped footage shows one officer using force on the suspect, who witnesses say is a teenage boy.

"Commissioner Batts and myself are very disappointed and troubled by what we saw in the video," Baltimore's Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez of the Professional Standards and Accountability Bureau said on Tuesday afternoon. "We will not tolerate officers breaking the law in order to enforce the law."

Rodriguez said the department is taking "aggressive, corrective measures," and will investigate not only the officer involved, but his supervisors' activity as well.
