Cop allegedly slaps handcuffed man

A Maryland police officer is under investigation after striking a handcuffed suspect.

Craig Reddix, a witness, shot cell phone video showing the Laurel officer hitting the man in handcuffs.  The incident happened early Sunday morning at the Laurel Station Bar and Grill, where police were responding to a report about a fight at the restaurant.

Reddix’ video shows the two officers were taking the man away in handcuffs, when one officer hits the man twice in the face.

The shift supervisor notified the Laurel Police chief of the incident and an internal investigation is underway.
