While one officer is punching Worcester in the video, another officer repeatedly knees him in the back. At one point, the first officer bashes the man’s head against the pavement. The third officer restrains the man on the ground throughout the video.
As the man is being beaten by the officers, he covers his head and balls up to protect himself.
The video began surfacing on TikTok on Aug. 21 but has now been deleted. Some social media sites and news stations have picked up the video though.
