Pittsburg, PA — A horrifying video posted to Facebook this week is now going viral as it shows several police officers savagely beating a seemingly non-violent man.
"It made me sick to my stomach watching it," said Joce Smith, who posted the video to Facebook after she says her cousin filmed it and sent it to her.
In the video, we see five Pittsburg officers conducting a violent detainment of two men, David Jones, 34, who was the man already in handcuffs, and Daniel T. Alderman, 47, who was the man having his head repeatedly smashed into the ground and punched by the officers.
According to city public safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler, Jones was wanted on a warrant for forgery and had previously fled officers during their first attempt to serve him.
"As officers were taking Jones into custody, a man later identified as [Alderman] attempted to interfere with the arrest," she said. "He was forcibly taken into custody and is in the Allegheny County Jail on charges of obstructing the administration of law, resisting arrests, and public drunkenness."
