NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A video showing the confrontation between a man and a Norfolk police officer is under investigation.
The video was shot on a cell phone Saturday in Downtown Norfolk and is circulating on the internet. The man was taking video of officers questioning his friend.
The video shows another officer asking the man to step aside. They argue over where he should stand. The man then asks for the officer’s name and badge number. At that point, the officer appears to push the phone away to get the phone’s light out of his face. The man then claims he is being assaulted by the officer.
Norfolk Police confirmed to WAVY.com that they are aware of the video and the Office of Professional Standards is investigating.
