Police use force to stop fleeing fighting suspect

Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson has asked the Independent Police Review Authority to open an investigation after a newly posted video appears to show an officer kicking a man in the head as another officer tried to arrest the man.

The video, posted to Facebook on Monday, appears to show an officer struggling to arrest a man in the 3900 block of West Grenshaw. Another officer pulls up and orders onlookers to step back. He then radios for assistance before walking over to the man on the ground — who was still trying to get away — and apparently kicking him in the head.
