Detroit police spokeswoman Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood told WJBK that the officer involved has been suspended and an internal investigation launched to determine whether the incident was an appropriate use of force.
"That's the are we're looking into: Was the force he used excessive?" Craig told the News. "From the video I looked at, it appears very disturbing, but it's important that we do a thorough investigation before making any definitive conclusions."
The officer has not been identified.
