New police brutality outrage over video that claims to show California cops CLUBBING DUI motorist

A driver who was pulled over for suspected drink driving is seen in a video being clubbed by two policemen as he lays on the ground.

Sean Reardon was stopped by police as he drove through Chico in California and claims once he was out of the car he was wrestled to the floor by two police officers who then hit him with a baton or stick.

Video footage of the incident, taken by a bystander, has emerged and shows the 30-year-old being repeatedly hit by an officer as he lay on the road."

The clip, posted by Action News Now, shows Reardon appearing to be hit with force multiple times. It is likely to inflame tensions in America about police brutality after a number of high profile incidents of beatings and fatal shootings have been caught on camera.

Reardon claims he was subjected to violence 'without provocation' and suffered acute respiratory failure and had to be put on a ventilator in hospital.

He was in ICU for 4 days. He says he also suffered multiple broken bones, including ribs, nose and sternum."

*Reardon had allegedly hit two cars while trying to get away from the officers, KRCRtv reported.

After he hit a parked car he is said to have got out of the vehicle and approached an officer, before complying with orders to lie on the ground.

Reardon has denied charges of evading a peace officer, DUI, DUI with alcohol or drugs within 10 years of a prior, and resisting an executive officer

He has not been granted bail. "
