An Ohio police officer has been removed from patrol duty after a video emerged of him stomping on a handcuffed suspect’s head—just two weeks after a grand jury failed to indict him for fatally shooting a civilian last year.

An Ohio police officer has been removed from patrol duty after a video emerged of him stomping on a handcuffed suspect’s head—just two weeks after a grand jury failed to indict him for fatally shooting a civilian last year.  

Officer Zachary Rosen, of the Columbus Division of Police, has been indefinitely reassigned to non-patrol duty while the incident is investigated, Sergeant Richard Weiner told The Daily Beast. According to Weiner, Rosen self-reported the incident, which occurred on Saturday.

The video, recorded by a passerby, shows Rosen kicking 22-year-old Demarko Anderson in the head while he’s face down and in handcuffs. Before being kicked, Anderson can be heard shouting “why are you being aggressive, sir?” at the arresting officer. Rosen suddenly runs in from outside the frame and kicks Anderson in the head.

“Are you serious?” Anderson shouts, “I got cuffs on, sir! Are you serious?”

Officers were investigating a report of a man, later identified as Anderson, threatening to shoot people inside a home in the North Linden neighborhood of Columbus on Saturday afternoon, court records show. Anderson allegedly threatened to “shoot all you motherfuckers” in the house.

When police confronted Anderson, he elbowed Officer Darren Stephens in the face and ran away, court records show. Police found Anderson a block away, where he was apprehended, arrested, and kicked in the head by Rosen.
