A Florida police department has launched an internal investigation after a video surfaced on social media showing a White Sarasota police officer kneeling on a black
man's neck.



The video was taken on May 18 during the arrest of Patrick Carroll after Sarasota police responded to a domestic issue.

The man, who was arrested on a domestic violence/battery charge, is heard the video yelling "why am I being arrested?" as the officer kneels on him.


"As I'm yelling, and asking, why am I being detained, he started putting his knee on my neck," Patrick Carroll said in an interview with CNN affiliate WFTS.

Carroll said he suffers from asthma and scoliosis, and hemwas having trouble breathing.

"While he's saying I'm resisting, I'm just moving around so I can have circulation in my body and my throat," he said.

In the cellphone video taken by a bystander during the Mayn18th incident, two officers were filmed attempting to take him into custody in an aggressive manner. At one point, one of the two officers is then seen kneeling on the head and neck of the man after they pinned him down to the ground.


A third officer later came to the scene to help his two other colleagues to take the man into custody.

The video surfaced in the wake of the ongoing protest over George Floyd's death, which an independent autopsy
attributed to officers kneeling on him during his arrest.

In the police incident report obtained by CNN, one of the officers involved says that after they placed Carroll in handcuffs, the "defendant attempted to pull away from
officers and refused to get into the rear of the patrol vehicle. Minor force was used to escort subject to the ground and secure him long enough for him to calm down."


The Sarasota Police Department said in a statement released Tuesday they didn't learn about the video until Monday when the department was tagged in a social media
post showing a portion of the arrest. After a review of several videos, Chief Bernadette DiPino immediately initiated a formal internal affairs investigation, the department said.

The officer, who knelt on the man during his arrest has been placed on administrative leave.

Deputy Chief Patrick Robinson also condemned the officer for kneeling the man's neck, saying: "Utilizing your knee on someone's neck is not something that we train. "It's not something that we authorize and it's not something that we stand behind."

"We are bound and determined to do everything we can tonbuild, rebuild and repair the relationships that were damaged in reference to what's going on in our community right now as it relates to this particular video," Robinson said.
