CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — Four Florida police officers are on administrative leave after a cell phone video appeared to show one of them kicking a handcuffed man accused of stealing candy and drinks.

The video shot by a bystander Tuesday night shows 28-year-old Gabriel Narcisse-Beckford sitting on a curb with Coral Springs police officers around him. One officer kicks the man as another officer tells him to stop.

WSVN reports Narcisse-Beckford had struggled with police and had been shot with a stun gun.

Coral Springs police Chief Clyde Perry saw the video Wednesday and tells WPLG he immediately contacted the state attorney’s office.

From a Miami TV station:

Video appears to show Coral Springs officers kicking man in handcuffs

CORAL SPRINGS, FLA. (WSVN) - Cellphone video captured a South Florida man being arrested for petty theft. However, it’s the officers’ actions that has prompted an investigation.

. . .

Narcisse-Beckford was seen surrounded by four officers who were visibly struggling with the suspect. Officials said he was subdued with a Taser prior to being moved to the curb where the kicking allegedly occurred.

. . .

He was being arrested for allegedly stealing from the 7-24 Sun Mart along West Sample Road. The store clerk said he stole a drink and candy.

. . .

“This officer probably would have said this never happened,” the viewer said. “This guy did not deserve to get kicked in his head while he was on the ground.”
