Rockford Teen Beating

The highlighted video is 17 year old Brian Jetter in handcuffs and on the ground.

You can see an officer kicking him. That officer, Adam Chappell now faces battery charges. He was released yesterday on bond. The incident started during a black expo event in Indianapolis on July 21st.

According to the police report, Jetter was arrested for public intoxication and interfering with law enforcement.

Officer Chappell claims Jetter was kicking him and another officer while on the ground and that prompted the officer to kick him to "gain control over the suspect."

Jetter was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries as well as dangerously high blood pressure. Today is actually Jetter's 18th birthday.
