Play associated audio

By Meymo Lyons

A Prince Georges County, Maryland police officer has been suspended and prosecutors are investigating an incident caught on tape.

In the March 3 video, 19-year-old student John McKenna is seen skipping down a street, celebrating the Maryland Mens basketball teams win over Duke. McKenna comes to a stop before two mounted police officers, and backs away from them. A second later, three officers in riot gear ram into the student and begin beating him with batons.

The officers struck McKenna more than a dozen times, leaving him unconscious and bleeding in the street. The charges against McKenna have since been dropped as the investigation shifts to the identities of the second and third police officer.
