Newly released video appears to show police officers in Jersey City kicking an innocent man after a fiery crash.
Officers were chasing a car driven by 48-year-old Leo Pinkston on Sunday night when the vehicle crashed into a pole. A second and innocent man is seen rolling away from the scene and then getting on his knees as his clothes are on fire.
Officers approached the man and allegedly began kicking him.
“This is unacceptable. We’re IDing officers. We’ll pursue termination + criminal charges as appropriate,” Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said on Twitter.
The victim is hospitalized with burns. Pinkston was arrested and faces multiple charges.
