Officer to face criminal probe for takedown

Officer to face criminal probe for takedown

"The videos of this incident portray actions and behavior that we would consider unacceptable conduct by a Sacramento Police Officer", the press release states.

"I've never seen hands move that fast in my life not even a professional boxer, totally uncalled for", said Hughes.

Once the criminal investigation into the officer's actions is completed, detectives will submit all reports and evidence to Sacramento County district attorney, who will decided if charges will be filed.

Cain's girlfriend, Antoinette Stewart, told local news station affiliate FOX40 that she could see Cain cutting across a street on the walk home from his manager job, but that he has no arrest record.

The two then exchanged words and the pedestrian began removing his jacket and challenged the officer to a fight, police said.

A Sacramento Police Department officer is under investigation after getting involved in an altercation with a suspect Monday evening.

The review includes some consent decrees that encouraged police departments to train their officers on how to better resolve situations without using force, according to The Post's Sari Horwitz, Mark Berman and Wesley Lowery. Why you hitting him like that?

The officer tackles Caine onto the tarmac and straddles him while punching him in the face several times as a woman in a vehicle who is filming the incident yells out, "Hey, hey... why are you beating like that?"

The bystander who recorded the video is heard saying in the background, "Oh my God!"

An unidentified policeman tackles Nandi Cain to the ground for jaywalking.

Within a few seconds, the officer is seen lunging at Cain, grabbing him by the throat and throwing him to the ground. "If you do not stop right now, I will take you to the ground". He was charged with resisting arrest, but the charges were later dropped. However, he must still appear in court for the warrant, police said.

"The individual was challenging to the officer not only posturing but also non-compliant with orders", Sgt. Bryce Heinlein said. "I felt like they were going to draw a gun out and shoot my in my back or try to break my arms off or something".

"There's a lot of people out there doing a lot worse things than I'm doing, just crossing the street, you know", Cain said.

The Sacramento Police Department said it launched a formal investigation after a video of a Sacramento Police officer beating a man surfaced Monday.
