LeRoy Hubbard III says that Chicago police went after him inside his parents' home and knocked over his mother who is on a kidney dialysis machine.

Hubbard claims that he was walking to his parents’ house last Friday night when two police officers pulled up near the sidewalk.

“They said, 'Come here' so I just kept walking,” Hubbard told NBC Chicago.

Hubbard said the police officers followed him inside his parents' home where all hell broke loose and was captured on video (below) by his 14-year-old niece Keeasia.

"I just went outside,” Keeasia recalled. “It was helicopters, it was police cars, just rushing in for one person.”

The video, shot on an iPad, shows Hubbard's mother falling on the floor while attached to a kidney dialysis machine and Hubbard being held in a choke hold, notes RawStory.com.

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

“They were just basically just assaulting my whole family so I had to give in just to make it stop,” Hubbard told NBC Chicago. “They charged me with assault but how did I assault anybody?"

Hubbard was reportedly charged with aggravated battery to a police officer. However, it's not clear why police targeted him in the first place.

“They do this all the time,” Hubbard’s father, Leroy Hubbard Jr., told NBC Chicago. “As far as the police, they do this all the time. They will stop anybody on the street. They want to get lucky, think they’re going to get lucky, you know, somebody's probably got something."
