A Columbus, South Carolina police officer has been reassigned from patrol duty after video footage showed him stomp a handcuffed man in the head.
Watch the raw footage:
According to a statement prepared by the Columbus Police Department, Rosen has been placed on non-patrol duty for an unspecified length of time pending the outcome of an internal investigation.
“Based on what we see in the video taken on Saturday April 8, 2017, the action taken by one of our officers does not meet the standards by the Columbus Division of Police,” the statement said. “It appears to be inconsistent with the values and training we instill in our officers… We’ll learn more as the investigation continues and take appropriate actions based on the facts gathered.”
The statement continued to say that Rosen “self-reported a kick to the suspect while the suspect was in custody.”
