KTLA, Long Beach, Ca — Police in Long Beach are facing accusations of excessive force after a video of a man’s arrest went viral on YouTube.

The video showed officers striking Santos-Lopez several times with a baton and then tasing him.
A witness, who did not want to be identified, recorded the video on her cell phone.
She and several other witnesses believed police went too far.
But police had a different perspective on what happened.
They described him as being violent and out-of-control.
Police are investigating the arrest.
Laurel, MD — The Laurel Police Department in Maryland had their hands full with this genius.
They responded to a call about a woman on the wrong side of the road. Turns out she was intoxicated (shocker), but then things really get interesting.
As any dumb criminal would, she speeds away from Police, on the wrong side of the road and into a telephone pole.
After that, she runs from the scene and then Police taser her!
The video was captured using an AXON on-officer video camera and released by TASER.com
