A shocking video that has gone viral shows a Prima County, Az deputy wrestling a 15-year-old boy with no arms or legs to the ground.
The incident, which was recorded by another teen, took place at a group home in the Tucson, Az area in September.
The deputy was called to the home after a 15-year-old, who was in the group home after being abandoned by his family, allegedly kicked over a garbage can and verbally threatened a worker.
The video begins with the deputy on top of the teen. As the deputy wrestled the 15-year-old quadruple amputee to the floor, the teen can be heard shouting and swearing at the deputy.
The video also shows the arrest of a 16-year-old who was filming the encounter.
Both teens were arrested on disorderly conduct charges.
After KOLD showed the video of the altercation to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, they said they are beginning an internal investigation.
Joel Feinman, the Pima County Public Defender, was outraged when he saw the video.
“Men with badges should not be acting this way,” he said. “Men and women who do act this way should not have badges and guns.”
