A Georgia sheriff’s deputy has been placed on administrative leave and is under investigation, authorities said, after video surfaced on social media showing a violent arrest of a Black man.
A video published on Instagram on Friday shows two law enforcement officials restraining a man on the pavement while a woman stands nearby, yelling and urging them to stop.
“Don’t kill him!” the woman shouts.
A Clayton County Sheriff’s vehicle sits nearby, as its blue sirens flash. In another auto, a small child watches on from the back seat. The man was left bloodied.
