Police Officer Suspended After Punching Suspect 10 Times

(Sarasota, FL) A police officer in Florida is suspended after he was caught on surveillance video attacking a suspect.

In August, police tried to arrest the victim for public intoxication and disorderly contact.

The suspect put up a fight and that's when things got ugly.

The officer and the suspect fell onto a table with beer bottles on it before the cop punched the guy in the head ten times.

The police chief in Sarasota has ordered an internal investigation.

The officer has been with the department for nine years.
