An Ohio police officer was placed on Administrative Leave after punching a Miami University football player during an arrest. You can watch the disturbing video below. You will see the officer strike the young football player, but you will also see a lady standing there clapping the entire time. I am not sure what is going on in this video.
According to the Oxford police department, an officer was placed on Admin Leave after video surfaced of their officer striking Miami University football player Devin Johnson.
Johnson reportedly entered Brick Street bar through an exit-only gate, pushing past a female employee on November 18, according to a Facebook post by Oxford police.
When the manager of the bar confronted Johnson, he was assaulted, according to police. Johnson then refused to leave the bar and an altercation occurred outside the establishment, the post said. Johnson claims he did not strike anyone.
“When the officer arrived at the scene, he observed the individual resisting and he was unable to complete the arrest until additional officers were able to assist in getting him into handcuffs,” the post added.
Johnson, is a 20-year-old defensive back for the Miami RedHawks, and was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, assault, criminal trespass and underage intoxication. Johnson has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
