Forceful arrest filmed in western NY

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Another forceful arrest by police has been caught on camera, this time in Rochester.

We’re told the suspect refused to leave the “open door mission,” then tried to fight off the responding officers and even refused to get out of the road.

Police say they had no other choice but to use force to take down the suspect. In the video you can see one officer using a baton to hit him in the legs or lower body.

The head of the police union says this is a technique used to get a suspect under control.
