New Jersey Transit Police have launched an investigation after cellphone footage surfaced showing one of its officer dragging and repeatedly hitting a man who was laying motionless on the pavement.
“The matter is currently under investigation with New Jersey Transit Police Department’s Internal Affairs,” the department said in a statement to ABC on Monday. “The officer has been placed on administrative suspension pending the results of that investigation.”
The investigation comes after ABC 6 aired footage from a transit center in Trenton, N.J., on Saturday night.
In the video, an officer is seen yelling at a man on the ground to “get up and get out now.”
He then can be seen dragging and throwing the man on the pavement.
