Hero orders man to turn and place his hands on the hood of the heromobile, which the man does. And then…
Watch the raw footage:
Police have made no comment about the officers use of force, but say the deputy was investigating reports of a theft and that the man in the clip was later arrested and charged with larceny.
“As soon as the Chief was alerted that this video was out there in existence he ordered internal affairs to conduct an inquiry,” Fairfax County Police Lt. Brooke Wright said. “They’re trying to find all the witnesses they can to determine what happened… it’s very hard to tell from a… very short snap shot in time, what events all occurred.”
