    Sanford Police Officer uses excessive force or not.

    A 20yr old man was walking with his headphones on and an officer rode by and did a u turn and parked in the opposite direction. He got out and walked towards the man and demanded him to stop. I don't think he heard him at first because he was playing his music. Then the cop kept yelling at him to come but he said, " I ain't do nothing! Then the cop tried to grab him and then he pulled away and said, I ain't do nothing! It turn into a little wresting match. The cop slams him to the ground with with his arm around his neck while on top of him. Some how the 120lb man gets up yelling "I ain't do nothing again. Then the cop slams him again and then throw about 10-15 punches to the head/face with the right arm around the neck and the left punching. A few minutes later backup arrives then another cop comes to the scene and starts throwing punches. (Seen by eyewitnesses but not in the video) One eyewitness was in tears because of the officers actions another called 911 on the officers because of the way they were punching him. After his arrest the office claimed he was making hand gestures toward vehicles and him. Several eyewitness on the scene said they saw him before the officer arrived and said he had on his headphones singing or rapping to his music and wasn't bothering a sole.
