California police investigating after viral video shows deputy punching teen – Erie News Now

The deputy lost sight of the adult who left the area, then attempted to detain the juvenile for further investigation, the statement said. A 14-year-old boy, who is seen lying on the ground on his back in the video, was “uncooperative” and refused to give out his information, the department said. The teen became “physically resistive” causing the deputy to lose control of his handcuffs, it said, and the deputy attempted to maintain control of the teen without his handcuffs while waiting for backup.
